SP7288 : Uncle Tom's Bridge [No 12], from the south-west

taken 2 months ago, near to Market Harborough, Leicestershire, Great Britain

Uncle Tom's Bridge [No 12], from the south-west
Uncle Tom's Bridge [No 12], from the south-west
Carrying the former A6 [now the B6047] over the Market Harborough Arm [Leicester section of the Grand Union Canal]. This was a typical humpback bridge until the County Council rebuilt it in 1958, and reduced the navigation underneath from 14 feet to 12 feet. 'Uncle Tom' was probably Tom Foster, who owned a cafe here until the 1960s. The cafe had bowling greens, a croquet lawn and rowing boats for hire.
