The Aldridge - Walsall Wood Branch

The station at Walsall Wood as it was in 1957 and today's comparison shot, both taken from the same viewpoint, the Lichfield Road bridge.

The line ran from Aldridge to Brownhills and although it was closed to passengers in 1930, these station buildings survived, possibly being used as offices in connection with the local Walsall Wood colliery, although they seem to be boarded up in the old photo. The buildings and platforms stood until the late 1970s.
