Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gobowen railway station is a railway station on the Shrewsbury to Chester Line serving the village of Gobowen in Shropshire, England. It is the nearest station to the town of Oswestry. Gobowen station is 28.5 km north west of Shrewsbury railway station. The station buildings at Gobowen are Grade II listed. They were built in 1846 by the Shrewsbury and Chester railway in a notable Florentine style with white stucco facing and a small turret. The awnings and the footbridge were added later by the Great Western Railway. Although a very small village, Gobowen was the junction station for the much larger regional town of Oswestry some three miles away. When rail services to Oswestry ceased in November 1966, Gobowen was retained as the railhead for the surrounding area. There is a scheme in progress to open this branch as a heritage railway.show more
