The story centers on the town's predominantly single and widowed middle-class female inhabitants who are comfortable with their traditional way of life and adhere to a complex set of social rules. However, the impending arrival of the railway puts Cranford on the cusp of upsetting social changes and the genteel ladies of Cranford struggle to face an uncertain future with dignity and 19th Century decorum.
