Trains into Leominster come to a halt next to the River Lugg after their picturesque journey along the Welsh Marches Line from Holyhead and Manchester Piccadilly or Carmarthen, Cardiff Central and Milford Haven. The station in the small border town of Leominster in Herefordshire, England, was built in 1853 originally just for through trains, but the Great Western Railway developed two branch lines to create a busy junction for trains to Kington, Presteigne and Worcester. Today, hourly services in both directions leave the prettily canopied station from both platforms. Leominster (originally spelt Lemster) is known for its rolling farmland, and is the historical home of Ryeland sheep, once famed for their Lemster Wool and prized above all other English wool on the European market. Nowadays, the town has a busy market centre and is lined with a charming mix of architectural styles housing well-known high street shops and independent boutiques, bars and pubs.
