     History
    The low level station was built in 1848 to serve the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton railway and also the Birmingham Wolverhampton and Dudley railway. It opened in 1854 and was then called the Wolverhampton Joint Station but was renamed Low Level in 1856.

    The station building is built of Blue Bricks with ornate stone decorations. A grand entrance hall with a high an elaborate ceiling led to the platforms as well as offices refreshment room and waiting rooms.

    The popularity of the Higher Level Station caused the closure of this one in 1972 after that it was used as a parcel distribution depot untill 1981 whaen it closed for good.

    Many plans have been put forward for the site included one for a museum but all of these have so far fallen through.
