L3063. Looking north east along a section of the concrete brook diversion that ran parallel with the Last Main Line embankment just east of where the railway crossed Watling Street (A5). From here, the brook passed under the embankment, eventually to cross back under the line by means of another culvert between bridges 436 and 435.
