Railway bridges east of Saxby Junction
Railway bridges east of Saxby Junction
Saxby Junction (a couple of hundred yards to the right) was where the Saxby & Bourne Railway - the westernmost part of the Midland & Great Northern route from the East Midlands to the Norfolk coast joined the Midland line from Leicester (Syston Junction) to Peterborough. The Saxby & Bourne closed in 1959 but the Leicester-Peterborough line is still an important cross-country route. The nearer of these two bridges over the infant River Eye is the abandoned S&B one. Behind the camera is the embankment of Lord Harborough's Curve, abandoned as long ago as 1892, described in the captions to some of my pictures in SK8219.
