Once again you foreigners have misunderstood the purpose of Stechford nick.

The people of Yardley placed a small country station, with stables, near to the northern perimeter of their lands in order that thieves and vagabonds from the North may be deterred from their nefarious activities before they have penetrated very far into the manor. It was named for the area presenting the greatest threat at the time.
Said station later became more of a fortification due to the increased business it was forced to carry out by our friends in the North.

Whilst there are a number of surrounding stations, in the areas where they are most likely to do a brisk trade, you will note that there is not a Yardley Police Station. Any station that may have carried this title proved to be of little practical need and was diverted to a better purpose.

Sheldon has a station.
Solihull has at least two stations.

Volty thank you for that little( mythical) history of Yardley and it's (even more Mythical) fortifications. Yes Sheldon has a Police Station. Under it is the extensive tunnels and chambers built in the dark ages to shelter Sheldons population from The Yampy Yardlyites. Sheldon station is a Sub Office of Stechford, as is Shard End and Acocks Green All these stations surround the Yardley Area, having been a problem village since it was owned by Catherine of Arragon.


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.
