Rugby to Stamford

Warwickshire : Rugby

From Rugby several lines of railway branch off, making it a sort of starting point in the centre of England.

With one or two slight exceptions, this railway traverses very nearly the line of boundary dividing the counties of Leicester and Rutland from that of Northampton, taking in the whole breadth of the two former from south-west to north-east. The first station on the line is

Lilbourne, or the ancient Tripontiain, where Watling Street crossed the Avon.

Leicestershire : Stanford Hall

Situated on the Avon, the seat of Baroness Braye, of the Cave family.

Welford and Theddingworth stations.

Leicestershire : Market Harborough

This was the place where Charles I. fixed his head quarters immediately before the battle of Naseby.

Medbourne Bridge station.

Northamptonshire : Rockingham

The ancient Castle, now the seat of Lord Sondes, about a mile from the station, comprises remains of a fortress built, by the Conqueror.

Seaton, the station for the town of Uppingham.
