After spending a bit of time reading Neil Parkhouse's recent series on the railways of Gloucester - 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. 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.

I have just completed the second part of a journey along the Gloucester and Cheltenham Tramroad. This length runs from the bottom of Leckhampton Hill to the junction with the Tramroad's main line to the Northeast of what is now Cheltenham Railway Station.

A fascinating article. I knew nothing of this tramway before reading this.
