Allelys Heavy Haulage LTD
The Slough
B80 7EN

Situated about 3 miles south east of Redditch and formed in 1959, Allelys Heavy Haulage undertake the transfer of various loads, from generators and transformers, to locos and other railway paraphernalia . Their yard and headquarters at Studley, host stock that are either en-route to their respective locations, or occassionaly, undergoing restoration.

By Car - From the M42, leave at Junction 3, taking the A435 Alcester Road towards Redditch. Follow for about 6 miles and after reaching the 2nd roundabout, take the 2nd exit into High Street. Continue to the end of the road and then turn right onto the A448, which is The Slough. From here, the yard is about 200 yards, on your right.

By Rail - By alighting at Redditch, Allelys yard is roughly 3.5 miles away, so taking public transport is the only feasable option if arriving by train. The bus station is the big cream building, situated on the opposite side of the road of the station entrance. At the time of writing ( November 2011 ), you'll need the number 56 bus, which departs from stand G. Unfortunately, this only goes as far as Crabbs Cross. From here, you'll need to walk the rest of the way. Follow the A448 ( The Slough ) and the yard is about a mile away, on your left. Walking time - approx 20 mins.

Notes - If planning on a visit, it may be worth getting in touch first, especially if this is during the week. Turning up unannounced, could very well see you being refused entry. Weekends, more so on a saturday, the gates will be open and a better chance of getting round. Immediately on your right after the entrance, is the reception area, so please make yourself known first. If empty, the yard will have drivers / mechanics etc walking about, so it'll be fairly easy to find someone to ask for a look around.

Even though the area is a fairly vast one, any locos or stock present, will be on the left after the gate. Nothing, in railway terms, will be parked anywhere else in the yard.

If going by foot, the most obvious point will be the amount of HGV's, so please be aware. And due to H&S issues, you may need to wear a hi-viz vest and suitable footwear.

Vantage Points - Apart from inside the yard itself, there are no other vantage points. The area is completely surrounded by a high fence, with absolutely no chance of seeing either over or through it !
