Subway under the M6, Chelmsley Wood, east Birmingham
Green Lane, a public footpath from Partridge Close, leads to Coleshill just over a kilometre away. The subway is reached through a staggered barrier about 18m (6 feet) high, making the height about 4m. The walls are a gallery of colourful graffiti; some of the designs are first-rate.
Chelmsley Wood, B37
Before the development of Chelmsley Wood it was Coleshill Heath, farmland east of Birmingham. Chelmsley Wood itself, centred on SP 1800 8700, was about 40 hectares of deciduous woodland, shown on OS maps up to 1955; scrub in 1965. The extensive new suburb or village first appears on a map of 1971. The wider area is sometimes referred to as North Solihull, and is undergoing some regeneration.
