Winchcombe

article by: SteveOddy

Winchcombe station, in common with a number of former Great Western Railway stations, is not actually in the place it carries the name for and is situated in the village of Greet about 1 mile outside Winchcombe.

Winchcombe's facilities include a 1950's style coffee shop on the platform where you can have a drink or a snack before catching the train.

Please note that there is only limited car parking at Winchcombe Station although coaches can set-down and pick-up. Visitors to the Railway are recommended to board our trains at either Toddington or Cheltenham Race Course Station.

The GWR is shown on the standard Google maps and, if you select the "SAT" option top right, you will be able to see the line disappear into and reemerge from Greet tunnel to the west of Winchcombe station.

For those of you using sat navs the post code for Winchcombe station is GL54 5LB.
