History

The halt was opened by the Great Western Railway on 1 August 1904.[1][2] Situated only ½-mile from the village of Willersey, the station was to the south-west of the road bridge, and there were two 100-foot (30 m) wooden platforms, each with a corrugated iron "pagoda" shelter.[3][4][5] As with Gretton Halt and Laverton Halt, no sidings or facilities were provided.[4][6] The halt came under the responsibility of the stationmaster at Broadway.[5] The initial service consisted of 9 Down and 8 Up railmotor services a day.[5] In November 1906, authorisation was given for the extension of the platforms to 152 feet (46 m) at a cost of £30.[5]

It was closed by British Railways on 7 March 1960.[1][7][2]

Present day

Little remains of the halt apart from some old railings at the end of the footpath on the village side. The trackbed through the site is unbreached and is in use as a footpath.[8]
