Trevor Station

I first came across the remains of Trevor Station many years when I first moved to the village. I knew nothing of the area then, but my interest was piqued by the existence of Station Road, running down the hill towards Trevor Basin.


I saw something in the woods, the remains of a platform, surprisingly sound though nature was fast reducing it to its individual bricks and slabs. There, amongst the overgrowth and the debris of neglect, the litter and rot was Trevor Station, a halt on the Ruabon to Barmouth line which was closed as part of the Beeching Axe in January 1965.




The Old Railway has now become a popular walk, especially during the recent Pandemic, and whether this was the cause for the recent cutting back of the trees along the remains of the platform, I couldn't say, but from the bridge overlooking the station, which in my romantic view of things, I imagine children, possibly Jennifer Agutter waving at the trains steaming away towards Llangollen, a clearer view of the Station is possible.


It was all quite moving, alothough I'm clearly becoming more emotional during this Pandemic.


For comparison, have a browse of the Wrexham History page on Trevor Station, where there are excellent pictures showing the Station in its busy prime.
