Proposed siding at Kidderminster for Mr. Green in 1876

As well as the collieries served by the Severn Valley Railway, a number of other businesses had direct rail connections.


An 1876 GWRGreat Western Railway plan shows a proposed siding for a 'Mr. Green' at Kidderminster, possibly George Ferrer Green, timber dealer and sand merchant.

An 1897 photo from the GRC&WGloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Company shows a wagon built for E.B.Mason marked with "Return to Sand Quarries, Stourport". The location of the sand quarry and its associated siding are not known, however, a visitor to the SVRSevern Valley Railway in 2022 recalled meeting someone who worked for Masons in the 1930s loading sand into canal boats to be shipped to Stourport where it was transferred to railway wagons.[1]. Ordnance Survey maps show sand pits adjacent to the canal north of Stourport from the 1880s to the 1950s. Link to map
