Line of dismantled railway
The line was a branch of the Midland Railway between Kingsbury and the Baddesley Colliery at Baxterley. It opened in 1878, may also have served the Birch Coppice mine, and may have been intended to replace or augment the tramway from Baddesley Colliery to the West Coast main line north of Atherstone.
