    Default John O'Gaunt Railway Viaduct, Leicestershire


    Stopped by here last weekend with Mr Sam, Matty_1912, and Stellauk.
    This is John O'Gaunt viaduct on the Great Northern and London & North Western Joint Line in Leicestershire.

    really do like these things, love the brickwork.

    The one in Stockport is the largest brick structure in Europe I believe :)

    This line ran right very near to my Aunt's house in Great Dalby. You can still see an embankment with a tunnel in it to give access to farm land on the other side.

    The house has been lived in by my Mum's family since it was built over 60 years ago.
