Barnt Green railway station serves the small village of Barnt Green in the Bromsgrove district of Worcestershire.
The unstaffed station is served by West Midlands Railway on the Cross-City Line South some 9 miles southwest of Birmingham New Street. It sits at the head of the Alvechurch/Redditch branch-line, and on the Birmingham-Bristol mainline. Most services are local to Redditch and Bromsgrove though there are peak time services to Worcester and Hereford.
Level access is available to Platforms 1 (Birmingham direction but limited service) and 4 (Redditch bound). Slope access from Helwell Lane to Platforms 2 & 3 but it is not suitable for wheelchair users without additional assistance.
It is hoped that the station will be adopted by a group formed under the umbrella of the Barnt Green Parish Council. Among the supporting organisations could be the St Andrew’s CE First School which is at the bottom of the station approach. One project could be a local history film involving the school children.
Barnt Green features in the CRP’s promotional video for the Barnt Green to Redditch railway line and has a StitchTrain Class 196 ready for display once the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted (digital image)
