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

History[edit]

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.
