Fields by the M40 seen from the B4463 crossing
The crossing is about 1km west of junction 15; the B4463 runs from there towards Hampton on the Hill. Beyond the straight row of small trees some larger trees mark the line of the Horse Brook. Flowing away from the camera, it is channelled through the middle of junction 15 on its way to join the River Avon near Barford. On the skyline left of centre is the tower of St Mary's Church in Warwick.
The M40 Motorway
The M40 Motorway runs for 89 miles, connecting the cities of London and Birmingham.

The motorway was built in two sections. The original M40 which was built between 1967 and 1974 ran from London to Oxford, bypassing the congested A40. In the late 1980s and early 1990s it was extended to join the M42 at Solihull in order to provide an alternative to the M1/M6 route between London and Birmingham; the final section being opened in January 1991.
