Staverton viaduct under construction, Northamptonshire

L1781. Staverton viaduct, Northamptonshire, pictured here still under construction, circa 1897. With the wooden centrings still to be removed from some of the arches, this is an interesting snapshot of bridge building at the end of the nineteenth century. T. Oliver & Son was the contractor who built this part of the Last Main Line (Contract No.4, Rugby to Woodford).
