Narroways Hill got it's name from the nearby Narroways Road which used to be nothing more than a small footpath between St Werburghs Church and Mina Road. For many years the lane was known as Cut-Throat Lane after a particularly gruesome murder that took place there.

The view south from Narroways Hill. In the far distance the line curves and enters Stapleton Road station. The scrapyard at the right of the railway is alongside the M32 motorway and was once rail served and even had it's own 03 shunter. It's built on the site of Stapleton Road goods yard. The line curving away on the right is The Severn Beach Line.
Looking in the opposite direction and the cutting has long been filled in. The line of houses on the right give away the direction the line went in, and in the middle of the photo is a lampost with a blue sign attached. That's where the railway crossed Glenfrome Road. This is the same view as in Ian Tiley's photo at the top of the page.
