Lickey Road (B4120), Rednal, Birmingham
Lickey Road (B4120), Rednal, Birmingham
Lickey Road here is a dual carriageway. Opposite the no right turn sign is a sign saying Welcome to Birmingham. Just south of here is the boundary between the City of Birmingham and the Parish of Cofton Hackett, part of Bromsgrove District.

In between the two carriageways of the road is a grassed reservation, which today has many trees growing in it. This originally carried a double track tramway, which terminated a short way south of this view. It carried vast numbers of visitors to the Rednal terminus, which was convenient for the nearby Lickey Hills. The tramway was a late extension to Birmingham's original tramway system and a rare example of a tramway replacing a motor bus service. It opened in 1924, closed in July 1952 and was replaced by a motor bus service.
