An interior view, above, of one end of the arcade only. It is
lined throughout in white glazed brick (not tiles - which is probably why they
are still in place).
This is a very remarkable structure, made necessary
by the way in which, and the times at which, railways came to
Wolverhampton. Walking along here is still an interesting experience;
when the Low Level Station is restored and alive again, it will be one
of the great sights.
In November 2003 the restoration of this structure was
completed. The work had been carried out to coincide with the
proposed redevelopment of the Low Level Station - which did not come
about. But almost to the day that the Colonnades were re-opened it
was announced that a new company had acquired the Low Level Station and
were going to put forward new proposals for the Low Level station.
