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.

Coal Yards

There were three coal yards with weigh-bridges in Ross, but only evidence of two of them remain. The remaining ones are outside Ross Re-cycling (which used to be Real Fire Heating and prior to that it was Phoenix Coal) and the second is outside the council Household Waste Site (this used to be the South Herefordshire Fuels yard and before that it was Webb,Hall and Webb) both in Station Street. The third one was at the site of LLewellyns coal merchants and that was located somewhere near the entrance to Morrisons, opposite to Smallbrook road but all evidence has been completely removed. These are likely to have supplied the railway.

The weigh bed has been removed (and filled in with tarmac) from the one outside Ross Re-cycling but the gauge [image] remains in the small building behind it.
