Daisy Bank railway station was a station built by the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway in 1854 as Daisy Bank & Bradley station. It was situated on the Oxford-Worcester-Wolverhampton Line. The station closed in 1916 as a wartime economy measure before reopening in 1919, and closed permanently in 1962, though goods trains continued to pass through the site until the line closed completely on 22 September 1968.[2]

The cutting from the station site has since been filled in and is now a nature walk with the otherside of the line still being in situ as a footpath until a large shrub has been placed to block off the trackbed towards Bilston West.
