Stratford Road bridge and Balscote ironstone quarry
Stratford Road bridge and Balscote ironstone quarry
The bridge parapet in the foreground is that of a bridge under the Stratford Road built in 1954 to allow the Oxfordshire Ironstone Quarries to extract the ironstone from the land visible beyond. This was the Balscote Quarry which was worked between 1956 and the closure of the entire quarry system in 1967. The bridge provided a link for removal of ironstone via the quarry railway network back to SP4042 : Oxfordshire Ironstone Quarries Headquarters site at Wroxton for processing.
