Railway bridge east of Saxby Junction
Railway bridge east of Saxby Junction
Saxby Junction (a couple of hundred yards to the left) 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 (one pier of whose bridge can be seen through the left-hand arch) closed in 1959 but the Midland's three-arch bridge over the infant River Eye still carries important cross-country traffic.
