The horse tramway terminus as shown on the 1:2,500 1876 OS map. Maps are the only records available concerning Shipston-on-Stour in tramway days and it is not known what purpose the various buildings dotted around the site were. It is however safe to deduce some would have been used by coal and stone merchants and there was probably also a stable. The track layout was alright for horse-drawn wagons, note there are two sidings accessible only be means of a reversal, but totally unsuitable for locomotive operation which would come thirteen years later. At this time the gasworks had just one gasometer. Note the ruralness of the scene compared to today with much of the area shown on this map now covered by housing.
