Crossing Cottage
The cottage was built to accommodate the level crossing keeper for the railway branch line from Moreton-in-Marsh to Shipston-on-Stour, the trains would have passed where the garage now is on a very oblique angle to the road. This cottage is somewhat different to the other crossing cottages on the branch. Built as a horse-drawn tramway between Moreton-in-Marsh and Stratford-upon-Avon with a branch to Shipston-on-Stour, the part between Moreton and Shipston was converted into a standard railway in 1889. Passenger services ceased in 1929, goods traffic ceased in 1960. See LinkExternal link for more details and original photographs.
