"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 dramatized 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)
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.
