L2451. Work in progress on the site of the proposed Great Central station at the southern tip of Swithland Reservoir, Leicestershire. Although the bridge was eventually completed, there was never a station built on this site. Note that the embankment has not yet been built up to the brick abutment on the left of the picture.
