Blakedown

Blakedown railway station by David Stowell CCL

Blakedown railway station serves the residential villages of Blakedown and Churchill in the Wyre Forest district of Worcestershire.

The unstaffed station is served by West Midlands Railway on the Hagley to Worcester line. Trains run from Stratford Upon Avon and Whitlock’s End to Kidderminster and Worcester via Birmingham Snow Hill and Moor St.

Level access is available to both platforms

Community Rail Activity

WMR is allowing existing station adoption groups to return to work at WMR stations, and is encouraging new groups to be formed once more. For further information please contact friends@wmtrains.co.uk

Links have been formed with Blakedown Primary School, and the Churchill and Blakedown Historical Society.  A possible activity is a trip on the train by school children visiting the Library at Hagley.
The former signalbox at Blakedown has been relocated near to the station. It is owned by the Parish Council and is maintained by the Historical Society.

There is a StitchTrain Class 196 ready for display once the Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted (digital image)
