Edge Hill Light Railway embankment
Edge Hill Light Railway embankment
This embankment is close to the point at which the line crossed the road to Radway and is still shown on modern OS maps. This three mile long standard gauge line was built for the Oxfordshire Ironstone Company in 1920 and ran from a junction with the Stratford-on-Avon & Midland Junction Railway at Burton Dassett to ironstone mines at Edge Hill around SP3747. It was only operated for five years before the iron ores ran out and the line was closed. The railway and its rolling stock lay derelict for another 22 years before it was dismantled. The 1940s map still shows the line as being in existence. See also LinkExternal link
