L1127. A steel girder overbridge located near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. This bridge was built as part of the Northolt Junction to High Wycombe contract awarded to Pauling & Co. of Westminster. The bridge appears to be fully complete but the photograph shows temporary construction 'shacks' below the bridge and alongside the tracks. There is also a temporary water supply pipe mounted on a tall gantry, presumably used for taking water on board the constructors engines working on the line (one of which can be seen in the distance).
