Between the girders of Braunstone Gate Bridge (Bridge 374) in Leicester.

Between the girders of Braunstone Gate Bridge (Bridge 374) in Leicester.

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L3209. This photograph was taken facing north on the old Braunstone Gate girder bridge in Leicester during July 2002. It is located on the junction between Braunstone Gate, Duns Lane and Western Boulevard, and carried the GCR over the latter and the old River Soar. This bridge also marks the start point of the Great Central Way - a cycle and foot path that links Leicester and Aylestone via the old GCR trackbed, although pedestrians are requested not to use it. Like many of the old Great Central structures, the bridge has not managed to escape the attention of paint sprayers, as can be seen from the pathway.
