‘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'

Share 'BRIDGE 14 POST AT TOWCESTER.'
Concrete post near Bridge 14 over the River Tove. This would have held the cast iron Bridge number plate. Now leaning substantially, due to erosion of the embankment at this point. See previous photo of Bridge 12 with the Bridge number plate in LMS days.
