Blackfirs Lane in 1996 - Coppermine - 20762.jpg
Blackfirs Lane in 1996 - Blackfirs Lane, Solihull taken in 1996 showing the road narrowed to S1 after it was closed to traffic. I'm not sure when this took place but the grass on the right looks well established. Today I suspect it's even more overgrown. EDIT- this is now on Google Street View and the vegetation is completely overgrown.
Speed Limit Decimation Solihull Style - Coppermine - 22187.jpg
Speed Limit Decimation Solihull Style

Advertising sign posted by Solihull Council on the B4102 Kenilworth Road Hampton in Arden eastern side of the town proposing the 'standard' revised national speed limit. In fairness to the Council at least they are making their intentions fairly visible. There are more of these littered around the Balsall Common area and are a result of their speed limit review no doubt.

Horse Mounting Block and Shared Footpath Signs Berkswell - Coppermine - 13550.jpg
Horse Mounting Block and Shared Footpath Signs Berkswell

Horse mounting block and shared footpath signs at the Berkswell station underbridge approach looking towards Balsall Common. As the pedestrian underbridge is only about 7' then it makes sense for horse riders to dismount. The block is just the retaining wall that can be seen. 29 June 2007

Height Limit and Advance Warning of Low Bridge Berkswell Station - Coppermine - 13442.jpg
Height Limit and Advance Warning of Low Bridge Berkswell Station

Advance warning of height restriction on Station Road Balsall Common of 7' under Berkswell station railway bridge. Since the level crossing was closed the only through route has been the low underpass which is available to cars and small vans only. The signing is extensive from all approaches and overheight detectors are also fitted on all routes (see separate photos)

Junction between Old Lode Lane and Hobs Moat Road, Solihull
This is a view north-west from Solihull towards Birmingham. The boundary is underneath the silver Ford Focus and the pub and hotel complex comprising the Wheatsheaf (the half-timbered building) is in Birmingham.

Along the A41, the Solihull bypass. A few surviving Thorn Alpha 8s and Thorn Civics at this one particular junction, which are SON/HPS lanterns. Nearly all of the main roads in Solihull were lit with Alpha 8s at one time, but a few years ago the overwhelming majority of them got replaced for Holophane V-Max (LED). Interesting to see that these odd last few have been forgotten about.

Along the A41, the Solihull bypass. A few surviving Thorn Alpha 8s and Thorn Civics at this one particular junction, which run on SON/HPS lamps. Nearly all of the main roads in Solihull are lit with Holophane V-Max (LED) lanterns now. Interesting to see that these odd last few sodium lights have been forgotten about.
