River Tame, later re-aligned to run parallel to railway. Elevated section of M6 now runs above the river.

I agree - this looks like the location of the multi-story tyre store, the facade of which is all that's left of the Fort Dunlop site.

There appear to be jumps on a horse-racing course here.

Almost sure it is Birmingham Racecourse - the stands are "under the wing".
