Elms Bridge Halt railway station

Elms Bridge Halt was a request stop on the former Coleford, Monmouth, Usk and Pontypool Railway. It was opened on 27 March 1933 to serve the villages near Raglan, Monmouthshire. It was closed in 1955 following the withdrawal of passenger services on the line. It was located in a small cutting near a small road bridge about 5 miles and 56 chains from Monmouth Troy. The halt was of earth and cinder construction, typical of the Great Western Railway.[1]
