The Hop Pole, Cheltenham
The Hop Pole, Cheltenham
This pub, opposite the site of SO9423 : Old Cheltenham Gas Works Offices and Clock Tower in Gloucester Road was the site of the terminus of the original Gloucester & Cheltenham Railway. This was actually a horse drawn tramway which ran largely along the roadside from Gloucester Docks and finishing in a set of wharves here to supply Cheltenham. This would have included the gasworks opposite. Another branch of the tramway ran to Leckhampton to carry stone from the quarries there. The tramway was largely abandoned with the coming of the "main line" railways although a short length at Leckhampton remained in use for many years to serve as a feeder to the standard gauge railway there. The location of the G & C terminus is commemorated by SO9422 : Plaque on the Hop Pole.
