L3026. Built by Thomas Oliver & Son as part of Contract No.4 (Rugby to Woodford), these are the thirteen completed arches of Willoughby viaduct. Despite its name, the structure (bridge 471) was in fact closer to the Northamptonshire village of Braunston, with the northern most section lying in that county but with the majority of the viaduct having crossed back over the boundary into Warwickshire.
