HistoryEdit

The station opened as Evesham Road Crossing Halte on 17 October 1904 by the Great Western Railway. The spelling of the suffix 'halte' was corrected to 'halt' in April 1905. Being a halt, it was unmanned beside the nearby signal box which opened circa 1891[1] and operated the level crossing. The station closed on 14 July 1916, closing as a wartime economy measure but never opening again.[2][3]
