John O'Gaunt Viaduct from the south-east
The picture shows clearly how the red-brick piers taper inwards from broad bases. The arches and parapet are vertical. The GN&LNWJt Line from Melton to Market Harborough gave the LNWR access to Nottingham and the GNR another route south for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire coal. The line opened in 1879, lost its sparse passenger services in the early 1950s and closed completely in 1964. Latterly the line carried mainly coal and iron ore, and summer holiday specials to Skegness and Mablethorpe from Leicester Belgrave Road.
