Bradford-on-Avon railway station is a railway station on the Wessex Main Line in between Avoncliff and Trowbridge, serving the town of Bradford on Avon (the station name is hyphenated, unlike the name of the town), in Wiltshire, England. The station is 9 miles 35 chains (15.2 km) south east of Bath Spa.[1] The station was originally conceived by the Wilts, Somerset and Weymouth Railway, but wasn't built until after the company was purchased by the Great Western Railway in 1850.[citation needed]
