Trains to Welshpool

On the English-Welsh border, Welshpool, now as its name suggests, in Wales is on the banks of the River Severn, which gives the town its Welsh name, Y Trallwng, or "the marshy or sinking land". Welshpool station on the Cambrian Line in Powys, Wales, was built by the Shrewsbury and Welshpool Railway in 1862. For many years, the station was a regular stop for milk trains destined for Midland Counties Dairy, which operated the creamery at Cilcewydd. Today, the town is largely driven by agriculture with the Smithfield Livestock Market home to the largest one-day sheep market in Europe. The high street is limited, so most residents shop in nearby towns, Newtown and Shrewsbury. As the present station is quite sparse, many head for the original station building over the road, which has been prettily converted into a shop and cafe, and perfect for a hot cuppa while you wait.

Station details & facilities

The single-island platform at Welshpool station is accessed on either side with a footbridge crossing both the railway and the A483 then leading down to both platforms. The station's facilities are very limited with only a small shelter, benches, passenger information displays and a help point. There is a drop-off point on Severn Road and a small car park next to the shops and cafe over the A483 ramp bridge.
