SK5715 : Victorian brick bridge over the Soar

taken 10 years ago, near to Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, Great Britain

Victorian brick bridge over the Soar
Victorian brick bridge over the Soar
Has the date '1860' on it, and at the time was the largest brick span in Britain. The paler pink areas appear to be more recent cladding. The bridge used to carry rail trucks from the Mountsorrel granite quarries to the rail line at Barrow, but the granite chippings are now carried on a conveyor belt.
