Construction of the Misbourne viaduct at Gerrards Cross

L1881. This fascinating photograph was taken during the construction of the Misbourne viaduct at Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. The structure was built by Pauling & Co. of Westminster as part of their contract to build the Northolt to High Wycombe section of the Great Western & Great Central Joint Line. To provide the shape of the arches, wooden centrings have been installed on the viaduct's brick piers.
