L1887. These are the two girder underbridges (bridge No. 468) that carried the Last Main Line into Braunston and Willoughby Station. Two separate bridges were required because the nearby station was built to an 'island' design, and the two lines of permanent way had to split to pass either side of the platform. Note the fact that the embankment has not yet been built up to the abutments. This section of the line (Contract No.4, Rugby to Woodford) was built by T. Oliver & Son.
