Photos of Kinver in Staffordshire in England, United
Kingdom of Great Britain.
Staffordshire, Kinver Village c.1910.
Kinver is a village in the historic county of Staffordshire in the West Midlands of England.
Kinver Village and Staffordshire and Worcester Canal with
Although the above image is not specifically of the Staffordshire
Canal as it passes through Kinver, there is excellent detail,
not only of the wharf, but also of the Vine Inn (on the right)
and the Lock Inn (on the left, since demolished). The only thing
is a clear view of a boat working through the lock, although an
enlargement of the central image shows a working boat just heading
off behind the Vine.
Also visible to the left of the tall dark tree (partially obscuring
the Lock Inn) is one of the Kinver Light Railway tram cars that
used to run between Kinver and the Fish Inn at Amblecote, via Wollaston
and Stourton. The railway opened in 1901 and offered a half-hourly
service for Wolverhampton residents to visit this popular Staffordshire
tourist spot; a distance of just over 4 miles. The one caught here
is obviously 'on the move', as it is slightly blurred.
The railway closed in 1930, and whilst little actually remains
today, the route can be followed nearly all the way. I would date
photo to around 1910, or earlier.
