Three Pigeons is junction 7 of the M40.

History

The junction is named after the Three Pigeons pub, at the junction of the A40 and the B4013 (now A329). The pub and the crossroads are still there, but dwarfed by the larger motorway junction.

Originally, the motorway junction was a three-quarter diamond, tying in with a temporary terminus that completed the diamond a bit to the west. When the motorway extended to Birmingham, the west-facing sliproad was closed at the top end, to avoid weaving.
