Gwersyllt railway station serves the area of Gwersyllt in the town of Wrexham in North Wales. It is one of five stations in the Wrexham County Borough.

The station is 3.5 km (2¼ miles) north of Wrexham Central on the Borderlands Line. The station used to have a signal box at the northern end of the Bidston-bound platform.[1]

Services[edit]

Weekdays (daytime) the line is served by two units, providing an hourly service each way (southbound to Wrexham Central and northbound to Bidston). After 1845 (and all day on bank holidays) the service is provided by one unit, giving one train in each direction every two hours.[2]

On Sundays the service is run with a single unit, providing a train every 2.5 hours in each direction.

There is a connection at Bidston for onward travel for stations to Liverpool Central via the Wirral Line.
