I spotted the above picture whilst rooting for scrapyard images on Flickr. The picture has been lifted from the beautiful and fascinating stream of local photographer littleredglass. I would imagine this was shortly before demolition, as far as I can recall, the station, closed in the thirties to passengers, was gone by 1978.
The reason this popped up is because there was, by several accounts (including one by [Howmuch?] who’s always bang on with that stuff), a scrapyard near to the old station on Coppice Road during the 50’s and 60’s, possibly called Heaths. I can’t find any pictures or recollections of it. As an incidental aside, I also looked for evidence of the war-scrap operation Ralph Ferrie had up by the Fox Covey on the Walsall Wood/Aldridge border, but could find no record of that either. I spent time up at the Covey, like many local young lads, rooting for bullets, often with quite marked success.
Anyone got anything on either of those at all?
