Street Art and Vandalism on Bridge 374 at Braunstone Gate, Leicester.

Street Art and Vandalism on Bridge 374 at Braunstone Gate, Leicester.

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L3210. Much of the old Great Central formation in the Braunstone Gate and Western Boulevard area of Leicester has seen the attention of vandals or street artists. Much of this is in the form of illegible sprayed 'tags', but there are sections where talented street artists have left their marks. A favourite site for these 'taggers' is the northern end of the Braunstone Gate lattice girder bridge, where everything from walls to benches have been sprayed. The fence at the end of the pathway marks the end of this section of the old viaduct, as it has all been demolished between here and the old Leicester Central station site, about a quarter of a mile to the north.
