For many, "the railway walk" is an great place to cycle, run, or walk the dog, But for 7 years, the line ran a passenger service for GWR.

About this event

In the 90th anniversary year of the line's closure to passengers, famed local historian, Ned Williams takes us back in time to the short 7 years in which the line was open to passengers.

Ned has been responsible for countless local history books, many of which are on the subject of local history, and he has given many presentations over the decades.


The venue has free parking, but space is somewhat limited and thus car sharing is extremely helpful if at all possible. The venue is served by a regular bus route, the number 16 to/from Stourbridge.

Tea, coffee and cake are available at the venue for a small donation.

Toilet facilities are available and the venue is wheelchair accessible/located on the ground floor.
