The Cheltenham and Gloucester Tramroad

After spending a bit of time reading Neil Parkhouse's recent series on the railways of Gloucestershire - entitled "British Railway History in Colour" and published by The Lightmoor Press, I have stared looking at the ancient tramroad which served Gloucester Docks and Cheltenham and Leckhampton Hill (3ft 6 in gauge). There is an excellent little book about this by David Bick. The first post in this short series focusses on the remote end of the branch-line which served Leckhampton Quarries. A small part of the tramroad outside the quarry boundaries remained in use up until the turn of the 20th Century.
