Marston Green

After passing under Marston Hall bridge we traverse some prettily wooded country, having Marston Wood on the right, and Elmdon Park on the left. On reaching the Sheldon embankment, a prospect is obtained which is considered equal in beauty to any which the line affords. On the right is Alcot Park, the town and church of Coleshill, and Maxtoke Park on the left. Elmdon, with its fine woodlands, and the pretty village of Sheldon; whilst in advance, the high spire of Yardley church completes the landscape. A short cutting brings us opposite the village of Yardley, near enough to admire the fine tower and spire of the church.
