"LYE, a township and chapelry united with Lye Waste, in the parish of old Swinford, lower division of the hundred of Halfshire, county Worcester, 2 miles E. of Stourbridge, its post town. It is a station on the Cradley and Stourbridge branch of the Great Western railway. This place has risen into importance within the last few years. Previously it was, as the suffix to its name implies, a dreary waste, and there is still want of regularity in its appearance."
