Bushey Arches
This well-known landmark is a five arched viaduct completed around 1835 to take the London to Birmingham Railway over the London Road. Only the central arch, on the left here, is skewed. The others, including the two out of the image to the left, are square on to the railway. The underside of the newer metal viaduct installed on the eastern side when the railway was widened is just visible. Today the A411 road passes eastbound through this skewed central arch but this is also a roundabout with traffic passing through the far arch too. The cost of the construction of the viaduct in the 1830s was 9,700. The buildings visible through the arch are on Chalk Hill.
