L1899. Built to carry the Last Main Line over a stream, this is a brick arch underbridge near the Oxford Canal at Rugby. This rough side of the embankment would later be dressed to form an even slope. T. Oliver & Son was the contractor employed to build this part of the London Extension (Contract No.4, Rugby to Woodford).
