This part of the Stour Valley line dates from 1865 and survived for 102 years; the Saffron Walden branch followed a few months later. From the 1920s, both lines fought a rearguard action against road competition. Busy again during the Second World War and for a short period afterwards, both lines benefitted from new diesel motive power by 1959. By then, the writing was on the wall for both lines, despite Haverhill being designated a London overspill town.In this volume, we look at the line between Clare and Shelford, as well as the Saffron Walden branch.


Stour Valley Railway Through Time Part 2 takes the reader on a tour of both lines showing through old and contemporary photographs the history of the stations on the lines over the last forty-four years. The remnants from Clare westwards and the Saffron Walden branch are explored fully, showing some pleasing sites as well as modern developments.
