For those interested in Moor St I would recomend the book "Birmingham Moor Street Station (A Century of Enterprise)" by Ian Baxrer and Richard Harper co published by the Kidder Museum

Not a GWR structure but a snip and it would blend in and provide a useful assett for Kidderminster Town

What do others think?


The derelict Manchester Mayfield was demolished recently too - again, obviously, not GWR but there might have been something useable left?

As I understand it, Kidderminster is to use remnants from Wolverhampton Low Level awning - and that was Great Western !

Whatever happened to the steel work recovered from Wolverhampton Low Level for re-use as part of Kidderminster platform canopy?

The Kidderminster Canopy project is in its infancy and progress so far is described on the SVRA's web site. Have a look at http://www.svr-association.org.uk/kiddercanopy_01.html
If anyone wishes to get involved then please contact Dave Kilner.

This appears to me to be an excellent project in many respects:

1. It will bring benefits to our passengers in poor weather, as the platform can be pretty bleak in the pouring rain.

2. It will further add to the generally appropriate development and Great Western atmosphere of the station.

3. It is proposing to deliver this in a financially sustainable way.

4. The proposals are to build the canopy 'properly' and not as a cheap imitation.

All in all, it appears that this is great example of 'getting it right' - what is there not to like about this project?

Hopefully, the opportunity will be taken to address the issue of the drains on the platform which aren't the most well laid out (in fact there aren't any after about half way).

Some parts of it will end up at on the VoR at Aberystwyth.
Just happened to see it on the news today.
Have a look at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-mid-wales-22706442

Oe for Paul J I think - have we lost the Canopy pages with the closure of the SVRA site?

Cheers

Patrick

Hi Patrick, yes the SVRA website closed in October 2015 following the publicised restructuring of SVR(G) and SVRA. However, I did make sure the articles from the SVRA web site were retained.

Hope this explains matters?

Thanks. I was seeing if they were archived but the link was broken. Do you know if archived pages or further updates will appear, perhaps on the Friends of Kidderminster Town Station site?

Cheers

I remember someone saying it was stored at a bus garage where they worked, can't remember which tho.

It was at Coniston Coaches, behind Paskins and The Motorcycle Mart on the Stourport Road, at one time. It's not there now.

Is there any news on this?
I'm sure I heard once that there were two types of support steelwork from two different locations stored somewhere. A frames and Y frames? I don't know if there's enough in total for the full length of the platform.
All I can find on line is this editorial from the Friends of Kidderminster Town Station where they say it would not become a Friends' project. http://www.kfriends.org.uk/magazine/editorial1201.htm

Does anyone know any more?
