‘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 'Ironstone from Blisworth'
Does anyone know how the ironstone was worked from Blisworth on its way to South Wales? Some of the output went to Frodingham via Northampton, Mkt Harborough, Melton Mowbray etc but both Jordan and Tonks record that some went to South Wales during the 1950/60s - was it via Woodford West etc?
