Mountsorrel Mineral Railway Bridge or 1860 Bridge

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The so-called “1860 Bridge” carried the railway (now a mineral conveyor to Barrow railhead) across the River Soar. It is considered one of the finest brick-built, single span (at 90 feet) bridges in the country.

What a beauty! I think it would be Mountsorrel Mineral Railway Bridge a Grade II Listed Building see here…

Great brickwork. There is one near us, Oxley Viaduct, also a Grade II Listed Brige

The brickwork under the skew arch is a work of art!

All the best Peter
