Bearley railway station serves the village of Bearley in south Warwickshire, England. Once a junction station (a branch line to Alcester met the Stratford-upon-Avon to Hatton line here), today it is an unstaffed rural halt, managed by London Midland although Chiltern Railways provides most of the train services.

The station dates from 1860, when it opened along with the 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]

The station sees five daily departures in each direction, Mon-Sat. Most of these are Chiltern Railways services on the Leamington to Stratford Line, some of these trains continue to or start from London Marylebone. One southbound London Midland service between Birmingham and Stratford stops here in the early morning, but most pass through without stopping.[1]

There is no Sunday service.
