Wynnville Halt was a small railway halt located on the Shrewsbury to Chester Line less than a mile north of Ruabon station in Wales. It was opened by the Great Western Railway in the nineteen thirties, to serve the newly built Wynnville housing estate, as part of its programme of opening halts to combat emerging competition from bus services.[2]
