The station at Penkridge was opened in 1837 with the permission of the local Lord Hatherton, who accepted the disruption to the village and the inconvenience of the train line crossing his land in exchange for certain privileges, including the right to demand that express and mail trains stop at Penkridge for the convenience of himself and his guests.
