Tracing the Bewdley to Hartlebury Junction line

Another video from Holden Webster, who runs the Shropshire Railways website.

This one discovers the southern end of the Severn Valley Railway. The SVR was built to join Shrewsbury to Worcester with the link to Kidderminster coming later providing an East/West link across the South Shropshire border.

His journey takes him through Stourport on Severn where the lines history is preserved with a public footpath nearly all way from the centre of Stourport to the junction with the main Worcester to Birmingham line at Hatlebury.

The station at Stourport has sadly disappeared altogether into a modern housing development, but the large rail viaduct to the east of the town still remains intact to walk on.
