‘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 'Roade Br166 Hartwell'
This is bridge 166 on the Hartwell road out of Roade - as suggested by Jim this might be the unidentified pic location - the view is looking down from the bridge towards the camera. In the distance can just be seen the white water tower that still stands next to the WCML at Roade. This bridge has now totally gone, along with most traces of the trackbed.
