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.

Five Ways

At Five Ways there were twin bridges over Ledbury Road and Brampton Road and only the piers remain.

These were restored in 1995 as part of the Fiveways Enhancement which was jointly funded by South Herefordshire District Council, Hereford and Worcester County Council and The Rural Development Commission. This has created a pleasant themed area dedicated to the memory of the railway with information and displays about the railways in the area.
