L3314. This small viaduct is on the Great Western & Great Central Joint line, close to the village of Denham in Buckinghamshire. Construction work is in the early stages, with only the brick arches complete. The wider arch on the right of the photograph still has the wooden former, or centring, still in place. This arch was wider than the other two because is spanned the River Thame. The wooden tower enabled bricks to be taken from loaded wagons below, and be lifted to correct level on the arch.
