‘The Stratford Upon Avon & Midland Junction Railway’ (or S.M.J.) was a small independent railway company which ran a line across the empty, untouched centre of England. It visited the counties of Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and a little of Buckinghamshire, only existing as the SMJ from 1909 to 1923. In 1923 the S.M.J.became a minor arm of the London Midland and Scottish (L.M.S.), then in 1948 'British Railways' 

Gone but not forgotten: "the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth"

I run The West En pub in Old Town Stratford.  I am currently pulling together a wide range of maps and photos about Old Town including the Stratford station and junction.

 

I would like to get copies of photos of these to display with other images around the pub.

Although I am a Stratfordian I have not lived there for some time. The only pubs I can remember in Old Town are The Talbot, The Mason's Arms and the Bull's Head. There is also the British Legion in Bull Street and some might have classed The Salmon Tail as Old Town which it is not! So please where are you? I will drop in when I am in town and I may be able to help with material or at least make suggestions as to where you might get some exhibits.

 

Regards

John
