The other station is the famous Severn Valley Railway.  Its steam trains run from here to Bridgnorth stopping at the historic market town of Bewdley which is situated on the River Severn, the longest river in Great Britain.  It lies adjacent to the Wyre Forest which covers some 600 acres of land.   The architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner described Bewdley as ‘the most perfect small Georgian town in Worcestershire’. Beyond Bewdley lies Bayton which is surrounded by the villages of Neen Sollars, Mamble and Clows Top.
