Trains to Chirk

Chirk traistation lies just outside the small town of Chirk in Wrexham, North Wales. Its 2 platforms flank Line 21 which runs between Shrewsbury and Chester. It was originally part of the Great Western Railway route to London Paddington and acted as a terminus for the Glyn Valley Tramway. It was an important route for the transportation of coal, taking over from the Llangollen Canal and was built by the Scottish engineer Henry Robertson in 1846. Today, it continues to operate as an important freighter line for goods including softwood, much of which is transported along a private siding to a factory just north of the station. Unfortunately, the local council dismantled and destroyed the grade listed 19th-century station building in the late 1980s, controversially with planning approval. There have been no ticket facilities at the station since 1974 when the station became unstaffed, so tickets are required to be bought after boarding the train. Today, the trains are operated by Arriva Trains Wales with an hourly direct service to Wrexham General in 12 minutes, a regular service to Shrewsbury in 26 minutes and Chester in 31 minutes.  

Chirk serves as a border town between Wales and England and is best known for its magnificent 13th-century castle which is owned by the National Trust. Bring your hiking boots because you’re not going to want to miss a walk through the rolling hills and footpaths of The Ceiriog Valley.
