Railway station

Formerly, there was a railway station called Studley & Astwood Bank, with service going as far north as Lichfield Trent Valley and as far south as Tewkesbury. The line was closed in 1964 so now Redditch railway station is the end of the line. The station building still exists as a domestic dwelling house and is located on the Slough, just into Green Lane, Studley, Warwickshire. It is about 2 miles from Astwood Bank and 1 mile from Studley.
