Seven Railway Bridges in Loughborough Junction

Loughborough Junction has 7 railway bridges and for most of my time in LJ they have existed in a faded, grafitteed and generally grotty state. 7 Bridges describe themselves as an arts led regeneration project focused on improving the appearance of Loughborough Junction. It was officially launched back in September 2015 with a party at Cambria Road bridge.

The second bridge on Loughborough Road is now under way. It has been apparently a long and complicated process to gather together all the necessary permissions and find the funding.  Congrats to all involved.

This is what the bridge looked like in the early 1900’s.
