A few years ago I wrote my dissertation on how the horse-drawn tramway from Stratford to Moreton-in-Marsh affected the economy of Stratford-upon-Avon in the nineteenth century. Until yesterday though I had never actually been to Moreton-in-Marsh which is a rather delightful town in the Cotswolds. There arn't really any traces of the old tramway left but there were a lot of lovely old stone buildings.

Moreton is a bit touristy though like Stratford (a bit more than I'd like), signs at the railway station were in English and Japanese! But you can understand the appeal. You can see my photos here.
