Droitwich Spa

Droitwich Spa station, Peter Whatley, CCL

Droitwich Spa station serves the historic spa town of Droitwich Spa in the Wychavon district of Worcestershire.

This busy town was known to the Romans as a key source of salt then was developed into a spa during the 19th century.

The station is staffed and is situated at the junction of two lines both operated by West Midlands Railway: Worcester to Birmingham Snow Hill via Kidderminster, and Worcester to Birmingham New Street via Bromgrove.

The station was opened in 1852 as simply Droitwich but was renamed Droitwich Spa when rebuilt in 1899. This latter station has subsequently been replaced by a modern booking hall and waiting room.

Level access is available to both platforms.

Community Rail Activity

June 2020: 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

It is hoped that the station will be adopted by a group formed under the umbrella of The Potting Shed, based in the adjacent Salvation Army Community Church, working with the pre-school.

An outline plan has been reached to have information for visitors displayed on the station fencing, to have planters on the station platforms, and to arrange for children’s artwork installations to be displayed in the station booking hall.
