Bridge 407 near Cosby Hill in Leicestershire.

Bridge 407 near Cosby Hill in Leicestershire.

L1982. The south face of the three-arched skewed Bridge 407 in May 1977. The two running lines ran beneath the central arch of the bridge, which was designed so that extra lines could be laid through the side arches if required. The trackbed is still very clear, yet the cutting sides have a fair covering of foliage. The bridge, built to carry the Lutterworth Road (now the A426) over the railway, appears to still be good condition. In 2003 the bridge still stands, complete with a new northern parapet. The cutting where this photograph was taken has been filled in as part of a land fill site.
