L&NER - Stations and other important locations in the County of Warwickshire

The following is a list of MR stations, junctions, goods depots, etc, which at one time were part of the County of Warwickshire. This includes stations such as the L&NWR's and Midland Railway's stations in Tamworth which, when these stations were first built, were part of Warwickshire but later in 1889 ceded to Staffordshire. The list also includes a number of stations from towns and villages which had previously been part of other counties such as Staffordshire and Worcestershire but after being absorbed into the City of Birmingham also became part of the County of Warwickshire. Examples include Kings Norton, Bournville, Barnt Green, etc on the Midland Railway's line to Gloucester. Finally a small number of stations from other counties which were never part of Warwickshire have been included where their inclusion completes a route. One example being the Midland Railway's Birmingham to Evesham route where Evesham, Harvington, Redditch and Alvechurch have been included to complete all stations along the line. Where a station was known by more than one name we have endeavoured to list them separately but linked both to the same station page. As this information is currently incomplete the list will be updated when we find the information. If you can help us with information which can fill in the gaps we would be very appreciative.
