Interestingly new fencing and access gate has been recently installed. No lock on the gate which leads to concrete steps.
Also there have been some recent repairs to the parapet.
Looking east, you can just make out the platform remains. The trackbed is neatly fenced off on both sides of the road by some white palisade fencing.
There is a signal on the east side that is gradually being swallowed up by nature.
Zooming in reveals the stop boards just showing in the undergrowth.
Looking west towards Bicester from the same bridge.
The blot on the horizon is HS2 which is shown as sharing the railway corridor with the former Great Central from Quainton Road to Calvert with a slight deviation to the east after. There were many "Stop HS2" posters in Calvert understandably. It will dramatically change the area but with no benefit at all to local residents. There is also a proposed infrastructure maintenance depot just north of Calvert.
http://www.railwayarchive.org.uk/map/index.php which has a lot of interesting Great Central history. At first I thought this was the same bridge but although it is a black and white photo, I think the bricks are lighter coloured whereas the one I saw was blue brick.
I will cover the last section from Claydon Junction to Bicester shortly.
