Oldwoods Halt was a minor station located north of Shrewsbury on the GWR’s Paddington to Birkenhead Woodside main line. It was opened in the nineteen thirties as part of the GWR's halt construction programme, aimed at combatting growing competition from bus services. Today the route is part of the Shrewsbury to Chester line. Nothing now remains of the halt although the area of the adjacent goods siding/s can still be seen on the west side of the line.
Express train did not call at Oldwoods Halt, only local services.
