"No performance, so far but tremendous promise. This place is a busy road junction in the centre of a triangle of high-level railway lines. Each road has a bridge a few yards along it. This unique signature could so easily be an enrichment instead of an embarrassment, the bridges accentuated and dramatised instead of disregarded. It is a natural centre, so that there would be no fear of tickling up an artificial relationship.”
Nairn's London - Ian Nairn (1966)
About the project
The centre of Loughborough Junction is defined by 6 railway bridges, visible from one position at the junction of the two main roads.
7 Bridges is an arts led regeneration project which aims to turn the bridges into a sequence of events which will define a place, engender a sense of community and identity.
