With trains from London Paddington and Birmingham New Street among the many that stop there each day, Ledbury railway station has been serving the Herefordshire market town of Ledbury for well over 150 years.

Built in 1861, the station offers a much-needed section of double track between Shelwick Junction and Colwall New Tunnel, allowing trains travelling in opposite directions to pass one another.

In 2011, Ledbury railway station was featured in Michael Portillo’s Great British Railway Journeys television show for the BBC, where the presenter and former MP travelled along the line from Ledbury to Shrewsbury.

Ledbury itself is a picturesque town thought to take its name from the nearby River Leadon. As well as its beautiful English countryside feel and 16th Century architecture, it also has great places to visit including The Market Theatre.
