Colwall Station

Hello! Life has got a bit busy for me in the last few weeks and so I've not been able to post much. However, I've been sent this wonderful picture by Les Freeman, which shows his grandfather standing on the platform of the old Colwall station in the 1930s/40s. I'll be looking to build up a Colwall page soon, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy this snap.

  1. I think you will find that it Malvern Wells, not Colwall?

    1. Hi Helen, thanks for the comment. I'm pretty sure that it's Colwall - use the postcard in this ebay listing for comparison:

      The artist has taken some licence by moving the signal box back a bit, but the railings on the left are identical.
