L3299. This five arch viaduct is located at Chearsley in Buckinghamshire, on the Great Western & Great Central Joint line. Construction work appears to be complete, but there seems to a large amount of mortar wash still on the brickwork. Note the protrusions from the viaduct parapet - these were recesses for gangers and platelayers, and allowed them to step clear of the tracks when trains approached. The viaduct was built to carry the railway over the River Thame.
