Luton: Former Gallows Road railway bridge
Luton: Former Gallows Road railway bridge
This is the site of the former Great Northern Railway's Luton to Hertford line bridge over the former Gallows Road, now the A505 Kimpton Road. Having been opened around 1860 the line was finally closed to passenger traffic in 1965. This is the southern bridge abutment but the one on the other side of the road has been demolished. See TL1020 : Luton: Former Great Northern Railway Luton & Dunstable branch.

The road is shown as Gallows Road on large scale Ordnance Survey mapping up to 1901, but by 1924 the mapping was showing that it had acquired its current moniker.
