L3029. Bridge 475, a skew plate girder structure that carried the Last Main Line across the Wolfhampcote to Nethercote road, about half a mile from the eastern edge of the Warwickshire boundary. The bridge's metal handrails are an untypical feature of the London Extension, and seem to have been most common on this particular section of the line (Contract No.4, Rugby to Woodford). Note the new wooden fencing that lines the road: this was almost certainly erected at the railway's expense.
