Adderley Park Station
Adderley Park station was opened in 1860 a small
two-platform on the outskirts of the centre of Birmingham and was used by
passengers to access local factories as well as travelling to Birmingham.
However for many years its main function was to collect and to inspect tickets
from all trains travelling in to New Street. The reason being was that New
Street was an open station which had no ticket barriers and to prevent fraud
this process was handled at the last stations before New Street. Monument Lane
on the Stour Valley line to Wolverhampton performed the equivalent function for
trains from the North.
We apologise to passengers for any disruptions caused by
