Details for the stations in West Wiltshire

Avoncliff Halt

Avoncliff Halt

Avoncliff Halt - formally a request stop - survived the 'Beeching axe' due to the poor road access to the hamlet and celebrated its centenary in 2006. It is served by the semi-fast Bristol / Great Malvern / Gloucester to Westbury / Weymouth trains operated by Great Western Railway which give an hourly service during the day in each direction. Additional northbound trains call during the morning peak to give a half hourly service. Changing trains at Bath or Westbury gives onward connection possibilities to many other destinations.

Station Facilities:
Waiting shelters, Information points
Note: Access is by steps from the aqueduct
