Bearley railway station serves the village of Bearley in South Warwickshire, England. It is on the Leamington to Stratford Line. Today it is an unstaffed rural halt, managed by West Midlands Railway.

Bearley was once a junction station (a branch line to Alcester met the Stratford-upon-Avon to Hatton line here). The station dates from 1860, when it opened as part of the Stratford on Avon Railway's Hatton to Stratford branch line - the Alcester branch was added in 1876, but this closed in 1951. Originally a single track station, the line was doubled in 1939 and a second platform built; it reverted to its current status in 1969 when the line was reduced to single track once more.

The station in 1963

Services[edit]

Chiltern Railways operate five services a day in each direction between Leamington Spa and Stratford-upon-Avon (Mondays to Saturdays). On weekdays, there is a service from London Marylebone to Stratford-upon-Avon in the morning with a return service to London Marylebone in the evening. There is also one additional service to Hatton. West Midlands Railway operate one service between Birmingham Snow Hill and Stratford-upon-Avon in the early morning too (weekdays only) which stops on request only, meaning passengers on-board this particular service must inform the guard that they wish to alight and passengers wishing to join this service must signal clearly to the driver from the platform. However, the rest pass through without stopping.[1]

There is no Sunday service.
