About Danzey Station


The station was opened in 1908 and being close to Danzey Green and Tanworth-in-Arden was named accordingly. Whilst the station's passenger facilities were very modest in keeping with many others on the line it did however boast a goods yard from the outset. The passenger buildings on the two platforms and the weighbridge located in the goods yard, were, in common with other stations on the line, constructed from asbestos (Eternit) sheeting fixed to timber framing. The station was approached via a short driveway off Danzey Green Lane, the latter also served the goods yard but from a separate entrance on the other side of the line. The goods yard was effectively one long siding with a corrugated goods shed and two small huts. Like all other goods yards along the route Danzey for Tanworth's goods yard was a casualty of the rising domination of road traffic and closed in 1964. The station remains open today as an unmanned halt.
The picture shows the original station name.
As there is no footpath please take care with geo-kids and geo-mutts.
