Dunhampstead Station (Goods)
Dunhampstead (Goods) lay on the Midland line between Bromsgrove and
Aschurch south of Droitwich Road
There is still a level crossing on the site today for Trench Lane to
cross the line.
Dunhampstead Crossing - 12/4/55
upper shot is looking south while the lower shot, featuring 'Black
Five' 44745, is looking north. A site visit in May 2008 allowed
me to take this
picture showing a similar view to the upper shot. All the
buildings have gone and the scene is of far less interest today.
Oddingley Crossing - 12/4/55
Crossing was about 3/4 of a mile south of Dunhampstead and there is
still a crossing there today for Netherwood Lane. This view is
facing south. I'm not sure what my father's friends are doing
taking photo's while lying on the tracks!
What is exciting is that the Google
Maps Satellite view of the area suggests that the box
picture from May 2005 suggests that this is indeed the case.
A site visit is very much anticipated...
