‘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'

Adam,

Further research shows that Lord Hesketh sold the estate in 2005 to Leon Max.

Another link you might find useful!

http://thesmjr.ning.com/page/easton-neston is an interesting history..

It seems that the site was leased from the Hesketh Estate..

perhaps that is a useful starting point..

or maybe the photographers who took the photos on this site might know something.You could always message them.....
