Old access bridge for Belgrave & Birstall Station

Old access bridge for Belgrave & Birstall Station

Go back to the records from the Thurcaston map.
L3236. The original station at Belgrave & Birstall survived until the late 1970's, but repeated vandal attacks left the buildings unsafe and in a poor state of repair. The Main Line Steam Trust dismantled the station at the end of the decade so that they could use the bricks to repair the stations at Rothley, Quorn and Loughborough. All that survives today is the old access bridge (Bridge 363) over the line, which still has the old entrance gateway - now bricked up. The photograph was ten on 19th July 2002 from the platform at Leicester North.
