Metal parts from Leicester and Swannington Railway Lift Bridge


The metal parts (believed to be complete) of the lift bridge designed by Robert Stephenson for the Leicester and Swannington Railway. The bridge, which crossed the Grand Union Canal in Leicester, was originally built in 1834, rebuilt in 1845 and subsequently, and was removed in 1966. Plans of the bridge are also available, so it should be possible to reconstruct the bridge.
