Corsham Railway Station
Corsham Railway Station closed in January 1965 as part of the Beeching cuts.
Corsham Town Team which includes representatives from Corsham Town Council, Wiltshire Council, Corsham Civic Society, TransWilts, MOD Corsham, Bath Spa University, local residents and our local MP Michelle Donelan, is working towards a new station in Corsham.
In autumn 2021 a Wiltshire Council bid to the Department for Transport (DfT) for funding to develop a feasibility study for a new station in Corsham, as part of the Restoring Your Railway Ideas Fund, was approved and is on track to progress to the next stage of the process.
A Strategic Outline Business Case (SOBC) is being produced and is the first stage of the DfT’s business case process. The SOBC will set out more details on the proposed project and the case for building a new station, and how the plans would fit strategically into local priorities and wider government transport ambitions.
The SOBC was submitted to the DfT in mid-November and a decision is expected in 2023. Wiltshire Council’s Press Release is available in the latest news section of this website.
