- Round Oak railway station
Round Oak railway station was a station on the
Oxford-Worcester-Wolverhampton Line. It was opened in 1852 to serve the town of Brierley Hill. British Railclosed the station pre-Beeching in 1962. Two railways/routes served the station - originally the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railwayand the South Staffordshire Railway, which later became the Great Western Railwayand London, Midland and Scottish Railway(through amalgamation of the London and North Western Railway) respectively.
Goods trains continue to pass the site for a few hundreds yards northwards, to
Round Oak Steel Terminal. It is set to re-open as a through route in 2012, to run alongside the second phase of the Midland Metro- though it is expected that trams will diverge from the line at around the location of Harts Hill.
