Shelter, Wildmill railway station
The only passenger facility on the unstaffed single platform Wildmill station is a small shelter, located next to the entrance/exit path.

A sign attached to the timetable information board outside the station states that Wildmill railway station was adopted by Mark Williams under the Arriva Trains Wales 'Adopt a Station' Initiative on October 5th 2006.

The 'Adopt a Station' scheme aims to help improve Arriva Trains Wales(ATW) links with local communities and customers living near unstaffed railway stations.
ATW want to keep their unstaffed stations clean and pleasant, so the scheme is designed to encourage regular feedback about the facilities available to help them ensure they meet the high standards expected by their customers.

ATW seek volunteers interested in the welfare of their local railway station. ATW refer to them as 'station adopters', with the task of reporting on matters such as litter, graffiti, vandalism, lighting, information help points and timetable information.

As an adopter, there is no financial commitment. ATW just require adopters to fill in regular survey forms for the local Station Manager describing the local station facilities. Other adoption activity could include improving the appearance of the station with extra touches such as floral displays, landscaping or artwork where practicable.

In return, adopters receive 75 of travel vouchers for use on any part of the National Rail Network.
