Redditch station is the southern terminus of the Cross-City Line, a suburban commuter service that travels north from the Worcestershire town through Birmingham New Street to the northern terminus at Litchfield. Although the first Redditch station opened in 1859, its location has changed three times, with the current station opening in 1992 in order to allow for the electrification of the line. Although Redditch has been a settlement since the Middle Ages and was once the centre of needle-making and fishing-tackle industries, it was transformed when it was designated a New Town in 1964. The Kingfisher Shopping Centre, which greets travellers as they step down from the train, was part of this development, and it remains the focus of shopping and entertainment in the town. The Arrow Valley Park - popular with watersport enthusiasts and birdwatchers - is a twenty-minute bus ride from the station.
