The start of a new Adventure…

Adventure Graphics - Station House, Midland Drive

We’re excited to announce that our new office is in the old Sutton Coldfield Town Station, now called ‘Station House’ located on Midland Drive, connecting the top of High Street with Rectory Road.

It is somewhat apt that the site of our new Adventure office is where people used to start, or end, their own little adventures in Sutton Coldfield in days gone by.

We are going to start our next chapter in a building that, if it could talk, could tell us stories of a world unrecognisable to us now.

Sutton became a popular tourist destination for Brummies wanting to escape the pollution & poverty of the cities. During whit week 1882, nearly 20,000 people visited to head to Sutton Park for a day out.

The station was opened on the 1st July 1879 and was part of the Water Orton to Walsall line. After several name changes it was sadly the first casualty of an over saturated rail network for an area with a relatively small population.

The station closed its doors to passengers on the 1st January 1925, however, the passenger trains still passed by until the actual line itself was closed in 1965. Today the tracks are still in operation dedicated to a freight only route.

So, just think, next time you visit the Adventure team you will be walking in the steps of our Victorian and Edwardian descendants as they commuted and travelled on the local railway.

Where will your next adventure take you?
