Hawkesbury: Black Horse Road level crossing
The London & North Western Railway built their branch line connecting Coventry with Nuneaton across here in 1850. The line was closed to passenger traffic in 1965, but opened again in 1987. It currently has a single coach hourly service, but funding was put in place in 2011 to upgrade the line with two new stations, one of which is planned to be next to Coventry City's Ricoh Stadium.

The old signal box, built in 1896, was made redundant with signalling improvements in 2009 and is currently boarded up. The site of the former Hawkesbury Lane railway station, which closed in 1965 and did not reopen in 1987, is just up the track on the right from the level crossing.
