Bright morning sunlight makes striking highlights and shadows on the patched brick arches.

The GN&LNWJt Line from Melton to Market Harborough gave the London & North Western Railway access to Nottingham and the Great Northern another route south for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire coal. The line opened in 1879, lost its sparse Northampton-Nottingham passenger service 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.
