Was in the area last month, so stopped by to visit this culvert again. I’ve been before, but was never happy with my original photos. This still remains one of my favourite culverts, mostly due to its depth, size and underground junction. Was relieved to find the water levels a lot lower than previous visit. Explored on me own.

The GNR & LNWR joint railway line ran from Nottingham (or Newark), via Melton Mowbray, and on to Market Harborough & Northampton, built around 1879. Passenger services were only around six per day in each direction, although it was more heavily used by goods traffic. The 2nd branch headed westwards terminating at Leicester Belgrave Road. The lines closed to regular traffic in 1953.
