Malvern Link railway station serves Malvern Link in Worcestershire, England.[1] It is one of two stations serving the town of Malvern, the other being Great Malvern station.[2]


History[edit]

A six mile railway from Henwick to Malvern Link opened in July 1859; in May 1860 the line was extended onward to Great Malvern and Malvern Wells.[3]

Most of the original station buildings (on the down (eastern) side) had to be demolished in the 1960s after falling into poor repair, though the station house has survived.

Development[edit]

A set of improvements, funded by Worcestershire County Council, are now being carried out to replace the wooden 1960s station building and provide a new entrance to the up platform from Osborne Road.[4]

Services[edit]

The station is located on the Cotswold Line and served by London Midland and First Great Western.[5]
