L2950. Built by T. Oliver & Son as part of Contract No.4 (Rugby to Woodford), this plate girder bridge near Wolfhampcote carried the Great Central's Last Main Line across the Weedon-Leamington branch of the London & North Western Railway. The vertical timbers are not permanent stanchions, and would have been removed as the bridge neared completion.
