The Broadway Extension is a project (and current aim) of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, whom are set to extend northwards to Broadway, Worcestershire.

Overview[edit]

This is the aim of the GWSR on extending its running line to the Cotswold Village of Broadway, Worcestershire, where its former railway station had been reconstructed from scratch.

Work on the extension began during 2005-06, and the GWSR even launched successful fundraising appeals as part of the project, since then a total of nearly 4 miles of track have been re-laid and re-ballasted, north of Toddington, across Stanway Viaduct, through the site of Laverton Halt, pass Little Buckland, Peasbrook Farm and Pry Lane (Bridges 5, 4 and 3) en-route, and has currently reached (and across) Childswickham Road (Bridge 2).
