Brickyard Crossing Signal Box

Brickyard Crossing - 10/7/55

Brickyard Crossing
Brickyard Crossing lay on the Camp Hill line between Saltley and St. Andrews junction.  The crossing provided access to (not surprisingly...) some brickworks!  In 1901 there had been Garrison Farm Brick Works and Britannia Brick Works close to this site.

The view is looking north towards Saltley.  The canal passing from bottom left to mid-right was the Birmingham and Warwick Junction canal.  The rail line passing left to right is the LNWR line from Birmingham to Rugby.  The sign on the factory beyond the line says, "GEC Domestic Electric".
