Two arch skew brick bridge

Two arch skew brick bridge

L1213. Bridge 378 (Upperton Road) in Leicester looking west. The two-arch skew bridge looks to be complete, but there is a pumping engine spilling water into the rive on the left. The lattice girder bridge visible through the left-hand arch is Bridge 377 which gave access to the cattle dock and electric light works. This was one of three such bridges in close succession over the river at this point.
