Two bridges spanning a cutting near Hucknall

Two bridges spanning a cutting near Hucknall

L1869. A lattice girder overbridge and a temporary wooden footbridge span a steep rock cutting near Hucknall, photographed on 23.4.1898. Looking along the track bed, a single line of the permanent way has already been laid. Note the sleepers and the sections of track lying beside the rails, and the aqueduct crossing the line in front of the bridges. Logan & Hemingway was the contractor responsible for building this part of the London Extension (Contract No.1, Annesley to Leake).
