Welcome to our website.
The Ashchurch and Tewkesbury District rail promotion group are a voluntary organisation that supports and promotes Ashchurch for Tewkesbury railway station and community involvement with it.
The station is situated outside the town of Tewkesbury, just off Junction 9 of the M5. It is on the main train line between Birmingham and Bristol and ideally placed for commuters to those destinations and to Cheltenham and Gloucester. The current service is comprised of one train every two hours in each direction between Worcester and Bristol via Gloucester plus five trains a day to Birmingham with three going in the opposite direction. We are campaigning for more trains to stop at Aschchurch.
Official figures from the office of rail regulation show that 68964 passengers purchased tickets for journies to or from Ashchurch in 2010-11. Other stations with similar numbers of passengers have at least an hourly service in each direction.
Providing extra services would not involve a huge cost because one operator, Cross Country, runs three trains per hour in each direction through Ashchurch without stopping.
