Santa Maria bridge on the Soar

Loughborough Monitor - 8th August 1975

We received a flood of entries to last week's mystery picture, and most of them gave the correct answer.

The first entry to be opened had the correct answer. It was from Mrs B. Webster, of 1 Mansfield Avenue, Quorn, who correctly identified the picture as the iron footbridge over the River Soar in Soar Road, Quorn.

The picture reminded her of Mr Teddy Warner, who over 50 years ago, used to live at Quorn Hall. She remembers him unlocking the tall iron gate and then walking across the bridge accompanied by his dogs and shooting friends.
