Foley Park

Foley Park is an area of Kidderminster, part of the Foley Park & Hoobrook ward of Wyre Forest District Council, through which the Kidderminster Loop Line runs. It was formerly home to a large sugar beet processing factory and associated sidings, owned by the British Sugar Corporation and subsequently extensively developed. After the cessation of BR services between Bewdley and Kidderminster in 1970 and until the SVR extension to Kidderminster Town Station in 1984, Foley Park served as the boundary between the SVR and BR. The name can refer to several railway-related features:

The area includes the site of a possible future station serving the Safari Park and developments of the Sugar works site, and mooted from time-to-time for an extension of mainline services.

It also includes the site of the proposed Wagon shed.
