History and amenities
The village formerly had a railway station, designed by William Clarke, on the Tenbury Line from Bewdley to Woofferton Junction. After the railway closed in the 1960s the station became a garden centre. This has now closed, but the platforms and buildings are still in place. The neighbouring station yard was recently developed as a housing estate and the station site has been bought by a housing association. The name of the station was Newnham Bridge rather than Newnham to avoid confusion with Newnham, Gloucestershire, which also had a GWR station; previously the village was known as Newnham and some maps still show it as such. The Talbot Inn closed in 2009 but reopened in 2012 after a year-long refurbishment, the other pub in the village, The Tavern, closed some years earlier.
