Site of Hookagate & Red Hill station, 1998
View NE on Longden Road approaching Nobold, towards Shrewsbury (Abbey) on the ex-Shropshire & Montgomeryshire Light Railway. The station - on the left - closed to passengers on 6/11/33 (goods 2/5/49), but the line was taken over by the War Department from 1/6/41, which ran a civilian service as well until it closed finally on 1/5/49. On the far side behind is the - still open - ex-GW&LNW Joint line, Shrewsbury - Buttington, connecting with the ex-Cambrian main line to Welshpool and the Welsh Coast.
