Kings Heath railway station was a railway station in Kings Heath, Birmingham, England.

History

The station was built on the Birmingham and Gloucester Railway's Camp Hill Line, and operated between 1840 and 1941. On opening, it was known as Moseley Station. On the opening of Moseley station proper in 1867, the station was renamed. The station finally closed in 1941 due to the Second World War.[1]

Future

Proposals have been made to re-open the station, along with others on the Camp Hill Line, for passenger use.[2][3]
