Gradient post near Loughborough, Leicestershire

Gradient post near Loughborough, Leicestershire

L2160. This gradient post was photographed close to the site of bridge 335, a small girder structure that was just 6' 9' high and had a span of only 10'. Interestingly, by the time this picture was taken (February 1978), the bridge had disappeared. With a relatively even gradient of just 1 in 300, this was clearly one of many fast sections on the London Extension.
