Pershore station serves the unspoiled, picturesque market town of Pershore in the Wychavon district of Worcestershire.
It is famed for its elegant Georgian architecture and magnificent Abbey. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and picturesque villages this lively town is a haven for cyclists and ramblers.
The unstaffed station is situated on the Cotswold Line between London and Hereford. It opened in 1852. In 1954 John Betjeman wrote his poem: Pershore Station or A Liverish Journey First Class, a copy which, courtesy of the Pershore Civic Society, is displayed at the station.
Nowadays there is a single platform with basic waiting shelters. The current operator is GWR (Great Western Railway).
The station gardens and planters on the platforms have been looked after for many years by a volunteer. The Cotswold Line Promotion Group actively promotes the use of the station and of the services which run from it.
Links with the volunteers from the National Gardens Scheme may be possible.
