The Harborne Walkway
Looking north along the high embankment which crosses the Chad Valley. This peaceful and attractive path follows the trackbed of the former Harborne Railway.
The 2 mile 34 chain single track line was opened to Harborne in 1874. Passenger services ended in 1934. Goods services continued into the 1950s, as the line also served the Mitchell & Butler's Brewery and the Chad Valley toy factory. The line was finally closed in 1963.
