The Stratford & Moreton Railway is covered in the book The Shipston-on-Stour Branch, as this GWR branch line was built upon part of the former horse-worked Stratford & Moreton Railway. 
 
Detailed track plans of the canal basin area at Stratford are included, plus other maps, photographs and history of the line. Both the GWR Shipston-on-Stour branch and the earlier Stratford & Moreton line are covered.
