About Cradley Heath Rail Station
Cradley Heath Rail Station serves the town of Cradley Heath in the Black Country, and surrounding area, West Midlands. Managed by London Midland, the station is on the Worcester to Stratford-on-Avon line, via Birmingham and Worcester. Some services are provided by Chiltern Railways.
History
The station was opened in 1863 by the Stourbridge Railway, on the Stourbridge to Old Hill line, which was later taken over by Great Western Railway. Historically the station is known as Cradley, pronounced Crayd-ley. Cradley Heath, pronounced Craig-ley Aith, was originally an area of heath between Cradley, Netherton and Old Hill. Cradley Heath residents had grazing rights, with annual payments made to the lord of the manor.
Services
Local services are frequent, with limited stop trains stopping at the station.
About the cache
The cache can be approached from three directions. Please replace in the same position, muggles will become suspicious otherwise.
