Bridge 377 at Bede Island in Leicester.

Bridge 377 at Bede Island in Leicester.

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L3192. Bridge 377 is a lattice girder bridge visible which gave access to the Great Central's goods yard, cattle dock and electric light works in Leicester. It was one of three such bridges in close succession over the River Soar at this point - all of which still stand today. After the closure of the railway, the old goods yard became home to Frank Berry's scrap yard and a chord was laid from the Leicester to Burton line to link up with the scrap yard. The scrap yard has been replaced by the houses seen here, but the track that made up the chord is still in place, as can be seen in this July 2002 view. The photograph was taken looking to the north.
