Site of Ledbury Junction
Site of Ledbury Junction
A branch line from Ledbury to Gloucester used to leave the main Hereford line on the left immediately beyond the road bridge at the platform ends. The embankment can still just be seen. The line was a classic country branch, moribund by the 1930s and propped up latterly by post-war restrictions on travel. It was finally put out of its misery in July 1959, failing to survive even until the Beeching era.
