Wootton Wawen railway station serves the village of Wootton Wawen in Warwickshire, England. It is served by trains between Birmingham and Stratford-upon-Avon.

The station was renamed from Wootton Wawen Platform to Wootton Wawen on 6 May 1974.[1] Under British Rail, the station was threatened with closure in 1985 (along with the line between Henley-in-Arden and Bearley Junction).[2] The plans were dropped in 1987 and the line remains open.

Services[edit]

The service in each direction between Birmingham Snow Hill and Stratford-Upon-Avon runs hourly (with most northbound trains running through to Stourbridge Junction). It is a request stop: passengers wishing to board a train here must signal to the driver; those wishing to alight must inform the train conductor.

There is no service on a Sunday.[3]

A normal weekday service operates on most Bank holidays.
