L2999. These massive brick piers formed part of the Great Central viaduct on the north side of Oxford Canal, Rugby. Further along the embankment is the brick arch bridge that carried the London Extension across the River Avon. At the centre of the picture is a temporary wooden shelter. Part of the structure has been built to house a steam engine, the chimney of which can be seen protruding from the roof.
