Ashton-under-Hill railway station was a station on the Midland Railway between Great Malvern and Evesham. It served Ashton under Hill in Worcestershire.

History[edit]

Opened by the Midland Railway, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. It was then closed by the British Railways Board under the Beeching Axe.
