A transformation has taken place at Bridgnorth station!
The new refreshment room and restroom facilities, in a 1900s Great Western building style, opened in 2019. Its well proportioned and carefully designed features are the result of meticulous research, scrupulous attention to detail and more than a little ingenuity. It stands as a testament to the SVR’s determination to create an authentic heritage building that not only serves the needs of visitors, but also harmonises perfectly with its surroundings.
Former SVR general manager Nick Ralls described the developments at Bridgnorth as the most significant development in the Railway's history: "The original infrastructure and buildings at Bridgnorth were never designed to cope with the large volume of passengers we have today. This new building will create a dramatically improved experience for visitors and staff, further boosting the local economy."
‘The next phase of work at Bridgnorth Station is currently under development and will include improvements and renovations to the listed buildings. We will also be carrying out some initial urgent works including the relocation of disabled WC from the current temporary portaloo to a more permanent location in the main station buildings.
