Bengeworth railway station in 1960

Bengeworth railway station was a station on the Midland Railway between Ashchurch and Evesham. The precise location of the station was not in the Evesham suburb of Bengeworth itself, but 2 miles away in Hampton. The station was named Bengeworth in order to avoid confusion over other stations in the area that also included Hampton in their names. Following the closure of the line in 1963 some of the land between Hinton on the Green and south of Bengeworth station was given over to housing. The bridge that crossed the main A44 Pershore Road north of the station was removed and the track bed beyond the road was used as an access road to the nearby water treatment works on Clarks Hill.
