History

The station opened in 1878, but it had a very short life in terms of passenger services. All of the station and lines passenger services ceased in 1927 except a few factory worker trains which served the Austin Rover Works in Longbridge until 1958.

The station had yard facilities and a small branch to the Hawne Basin on the Dudley Canal, with freight services continuing until the closure of the line in 1964.

Present

Today the track bed is still in place but there is no sign of Halesowen’s railway station. The station site is an industrial site on the bottom of Mucklows Hill (which used to pass over the railway line on a bridge) next to Halesowen College.
