Foley Park Halt was the first stop on the GWR Kidderminster to Bewdley loop line which now forms part of the Severn Valley Railway. It was located where the railway went under Stourport Road, Kidderminster. Facilities included a single wooden platform, a ticket booth and a Pagoda Platform Shelter.

History[edit]

Foley Park Halt opened in January 1905 and was originally situated to the south of the line. In 1925 the halt was relocated to the north side of the line to accommodate sidings for the British Sugar factory at Foley Park.[1]

The halt closed in 1970 when public services between Bewdley and Kidderminster ended. When SVR services started operating in 1984, the halt was not reopened.
