The Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway

Harts Hill


Opened in 1895 by a GWR keen to invest in what was perceived to be the lucrative passenger area of the Black Country, intended to serve the communities between Brierley Hill and Dudley. It closed, like many smaller passenger stations, in 1916 due to the First World War, but was consequently never re-opened when the passengers failed to materialise.


There are no remaining signs of the station, and the road from which it was accessed has long since been widened.


It was proposed to be reopened with a Midland Metro extension which will divert from the line at this point and run through Merry Hill Shopping Centre before and join on to Dudley and then Wednesbury.
