Gogarth railway station served a sparsely populated area on the north shore of the Dyfi estuary in the Welsh county of Merionethshire.

History[edit]

Opened by the Great Western Railway on 9 July 1923 and originally named Gogarth Halt, it had a short wooden platform with no shelter. The station passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. Renamed Gogarth on 6 May 1968, it was officially closed by the British Railways Board on 30 September 1985, the last train having stopped on 14 May 1984.[1]

The site today[edit]

Trains on the Cambrian Line pass the site of the former halt but there is no trace of its existence.
