Woodford Halse

Many major railways would ignore smaller lines crossing their main line. The GCR so welcomed the Stratford-on-Avon and Midland Joint that it put in curves heading both North and South from the 'Slow, Mouldy, and Jolting'. This is the South spur, which produced so little traffic that it closed after just a year. View looks South East through a substantial overbridge. The area is publicly accessible as part of a 'Pocket Park'.
