No services between Great Malvern and Hereford due to flooding

Passengers are being urged not to travel between Great Malvern and Hereford this evening (Wednesday 23 December) due to flooding.

Trains are unable to operate along the route due to water on the tracks. 

Road access between Great Malvern, Colwall, Ledbury and Hereford stations is also currently restricted due to high waters, so rail replacement buses are unable to operate.

West Midlands Railway services to and from Worcester are currently starting and terminating at Great Malvern.

It is understood that many other roads in the local area are currently impassable, so onward travel from Great Malvern station more generally is also likely to be difficult.

Passengers can check live travel information by visiting or follow @westmidrailway on Twitter for the latest updates.

Any passenger whose journey is delayed by 15 minutes or more can claim compensation via the Delay Repay scheme - visit for details.
