The Railway in Ross-on-Wye


In Ross there are various remnants of the railway around the town and these are a few details about some of the most prominent ones.

The Station

The site of the station was redeveloped in 1977 by South Herefordshire District Council and turned into the Ashburton industrial estate.

The back of the station in Ross was bordered by Scots Pine trees, eight of which still remain towering over the Ashburton Industrial Estate, and a lane that now runs from the Ashburton end of Station Approach to North Road. These can be seen in these photos along with the spearhead fencing that borders both sides of the lane.

The station itself has been replaced by the Ashburton Industrial Estate which was opened on the 16th March 1979 by Lord Northfield who was the Chairman of H.M. Development Commission.

Nothing remains of the North or South signal boxes where they were sited at the station. Outside of Ross, in the Kidderminster Railway Museum is one of the signal box plates.


Bus Depot

The station in Ross had a bus depot nearby and this site is now Brunel Workshops.
