John O'Gaunt railway viaduct, Leicestershire

John O'Gaunt was a station on the The Great Northern and London and North Western Joint Railway, which ran from Market Harborough through Melton Mowbray to Nottingham and Newark. It took its name from a nearby covert that was known to fox hunters.

The line closed to passengers in 1953 and to good traffic in 1962, but the John O'Gaunt viaduct still stands.

Now watch The Last Days of Melton Mowbray North.
