Stow Heath to Walsall Street

This is the only walkable stretch of the former GW Birmingham Snow hill to Wolverhampton Low Level route. Closed to passengers in 1972, it was subsequently occupied between Priestfield Jn and Snow Hill by the Midland Metro line 1 which joins the GW alignment by a connection from its street running section on Bilston Road. Although much overgrown now, it packs quite an amount of history into a short (and in places, muddy) walk.
