Hi folks, I have an enquiry in that I need help with, but I can’t be specific I’m afraid, as is sometimes the case – I’m asking to see what’s known about an apparently severe traffic accident that took place on the A5 Watling Street in 1963.
I’m not certain, but I think this is about the time much of the A5 through Brownhills was converted to dual carriageway.
The accident may have been anywhere from the Turf to Muckley Corner, but very probably at a junction, and is believed to have occurred in late October 1963. I believe the crash to have been quite serious in nature.
Sorry I can’t be more specific, and I’d ask that if anyone knows anything at all, please do get in touch: if you have any specifics I’d prefer you mailed me rather commented, but if you do comment, I may not publish what you have to say for reasons of sensitivity, but it will be most appreciated and if you leave a valid email address I’ll be in touch.
Thanks for your help.
