Bridge 318 - Loughborough viaduct, Leicestershire

Bridge 318 - Loughborough viaduct, Leicestershire

L2192. Photographed looking north in December 1977, this is bridge 318, the 176 yard (161 metre) viaduct that carried the London Extension across the River Soar. Because of the county's meandering river boundary, the viaduct actually begins in Leicestershire, briefly enters Nottinghamshire, returns to Leicestershire, and finally ends in Nottinghamshire!
