Photographic notes
The light is best for trains heading towards Coventry from around 15:00 till 19:00, however due to the number of trees and the general location, the sun is not a major factor to worry about.
Video wise the station is good, and is fairly quiet. Only the noise from the road bridge nearby is audible.
