Rugeley Trent Valley train station sits just on the edge of Rugeley in Staffordshire and is one of two stations to serve the town. It was opened in the mid-19th-century by the Cannock Mineral Railway, but just over a century later went into decline after the Beeching Axe which saw most of its services withdrawn. In the late ‘90s, the line was extended along the Chase Line and more services resumed. Today, the station has three platforms which sit alongside the West Coast Main Line and it also serves as a junction on the Chase Line between Walsall and Birmingham. In recent history, the station was picked for The Queen’s naming of the Royal Diamond locomotive on her wedding anniversary in 2007. There are one to two services an hour direct to Birmingham New Street, making it a popular commuter route.
If you’ve visiting Rugeley, be sure to bring your walking boots because you’re not going to want to miss a hike up through the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you’re looking for something a little more adrenaline-inducing, you could always go mountain biking instead.
