Girder bridge and culvert near Grendon Underwood

Girder bridge and culvert near Grendon Underwood

L3083. Thought to have been photographed in July 1896, this is the interesting arrangement that existed at the Great Central embankment half a mile south of Grendon Underwood Junction. Here, a brick arch culvert ran beneath a plate girder occupation bridge, with a gate on either side to provide a farmer with access to their land. The man standing beside the brick ends of the parapet provides a sense of scale to this handsome yet imposing structure.
