Between the viaducts: 1/3
Between the viaducts: 1/3
Looking from Bath Place towards the bridge crossing Lower Avenue, beyond which is Leamington Spa station. The viaduct on the left was built for Brunel's GWR Oxford-Birmingham line, opened 1852. That on the right was built by the L&NWR for the Rugby-Leamington line, fully open in 1851. It was reportedly stronger and better-built than the GWR viaduct, which is still operational, while the L&NWR, later LMS viaduct here is an isolated length having been severed at Bath Place and Lower Avenue. Most of the arches are occupied by car repair and maintenance businesses.
