‘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'

As you all know, not a junction at all, but the point where two separate lines merged. The trackbed to Stratford on the right shows evidence of recent lifting. But we were heading left, to Banbury. On the right is the 5 mile post (from Blisworth).
