Cross Hands Halt railway station (site), South Gloucestershire
Cross Hands Halt railway station (site), South Gloucestershire
Opened in 1928 by the Great Western Railway on the loop line from Bristol via Pilning to Severn Beach and back to Bristol, this station closed in 1964. It is hard to believe that there was ever a railway here, but before the opening of the Severn Tunnel, this was also the 'main' line to South Wales via the New Passage ferry. View north west towards New Passage and Severn Beach.
