‘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"

A photo mosiac of the walk I took in Jan 2009.
Not brilliant and I have to say I wish I had taken more photos but carrying mum's shopping and trying not to fall down the many hidden rabbit holes was a task in itself - I led as I didn't want my mum to fall!

The last 20 years have seen an awful lot of plant growth and degradation of the trackbed hasn't it?
