Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Churn railway station served Churn Down, a remote part of the Berkshire Downs. The nearest village was Blewbury, two miles north, which was already served by Upton and Blewbury the previous station on the line. The station closed in 1962. This was a small and very isolated single platform halt with access only via an unmetalled downland sheep road. It was built as a temporary stop to accommodate a competition held by the National Rifle Association in 1888. However, from 1889 military summer camps were established near to the station which required the use of the halt as the only access to the site. Timetables provided that trains would not call at Churn unless prior notice had been given to the Stationmaster at Didcot. The station buildings consisted of no more than a simple wooden shelter and basic lavatories.show more
