Bridge 418 near Bitteswell in Leicestershire.

Bridge 418 near Bitteswell in Leicestershire.

L1961. Looking south towards Bridge 418 in May 1977 and photographed with a 150 mm telephoto lens. Bridges 419 and 420 are visible through the central arch of Bridge 418 and are silhouetted against the sky. This peaceful scene is misleading as the M1 motorway runs parallel with the railway, immediately to the left of the photograph. Note the gradient change between Bridges 419 and 420 in the distance.
