‘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"

Rights of way on old smj trackbeds

As a wellesbourne Walker whose interest in railways and the oks smj in particular, are there restrictions on all or any sections of the smj. Yesterday I noticed a new private property sign on the over road bridge near Walton and Fosse. Horses/riders use it but does  that really preclude walkers? Interested to have responses. Like to observe the countryside code but is there scope to venture ? Thanks,  Peter See More
