Bridge 400 near Whetstone in Leicestershire

L1996. Bridge 400 was a brick-arch bridge that spanned Warwick Road between Littlethorpe and Whetstone. The embankment carrying the line was very high and very wide on this section, making 400 a very large structure. In this May 1977 three-quarter view, an impression of the size of the embankment can be gained by looking at the length of the wing-walls. The embankment has a light covering of bushes and the bridge appears to be in a good condition. Today in 2003, the bridge has been demolished leaving only the truncated remains of both abutments.
