The Railway

Until 1966 the Telford to Newport railway line ran straight through the farm. The railway bridge is still standing as a monument to this and forms part of the driveway down to Cheswell Grange. The railway was disused following Dr Beeching’s report in the early 60s.

Shire Horses

The farm at Cheswell Grange was one of the very last in the country to still use shire horses to work the fields right up until 1965. There were 5 horses retired at the end named Duke, Major, Captain, Soldier and Budd.
