L2328. Spanning a single track of main line permanent way, this is the plate girder bridge that carried the Great Central's London Extension over the London & North Western Railway's route between Weedon and Leamington. A layer of hard core awaits the ballast on the right side of the trackbed. T. Oliver & Son was the firm contracted to build this section of the Last Main Line (Rugby to Woodford).
