L2325. Photographed looking east, this plate girder underbridge is thought to be the structure which carried the Leicester viaduct across Welles Street, just south of the city's Great Central Station. Henry Lovatt & Co. of Wolverhampton was the contractor responsible for building this section of the Last Main Line (Contract No.2, Leake to Aylestone).
