The first major section of the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway (OWW), between Evesham and Stourbridge Junction, opened to public traffic on 3 May 1852, the opening ceremony having been held on 1 May.[1][2] Evesham was a terminus for just over a year, until the last major section of the OWW, from Evesham to Wolvercot Junction (to the north of Oxford), was opened on 4 June 1853.[3] The OWW became the West Midland Railway in 1860,[4] which in turn merged with the Great Western Railway in 1863.[5]

Facing the present (former OWW) station across the car park is the former Midland Railway station of 1864 by the architect George Hunt on the Ashchurch to Barnt Green Evesham loop line, which closed to passenger traffic in June 1963 and completely a year later.[6] The original timber buildings from this station were taken to build Monsal Dale railway station in Derbyshire; the replacement stone structure still stands and is used for office accommodation. The rest of the site has been redeveloped as a housing estate.

Services

Evesham currently has an irregular service with gaps between daytime services ranging from 40 minutes to 2 hours. It has a total of 32 services Monday to Friday: destinations served include Worcester, Great Malvern and Hereford to the north and west and Oxford, Reading & London Paddington to the south.[7] Typical journey times are 27 minutes to Worcester, 1 hour 15 minutes to Hereford, 55 minutes to Oxford, 1 hour 16 minutes to Reading, and 1 hour 44 minutes to London Paddington.
