Dinmore railway station (Herefordshire) served the villages of Bodenham and Hope under Dinmore, Herefordshire, England between 1853 and 1958.

History

The main line of the Shrewsbury and Hereford Railway was authorised in 1846, and opened in two stages. The second section, between Ludlow and Hereford, opened on 6 December 1853, and one of the original stations on that stretch was named Dinmore.[1][2][3] It was just to the south of Dinmore Tunnel,[4] which passes under Dinmore Hill.

Dinmore station closed on 9 June 1958,[3] but the line remains open.
