Whitlocks End railway station is located in the hamlet of Whitlock's End in the West Midlands of England. It is also located a short walk from the Majors Green area of Worcestershire, and is a short bus ride away from the new village of Dickens Heath. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by London Midland. The 275-space free station car park is managed by Centro.

Services[edit]

During Monday to Saturday daytimes, northbound trains operate every 20 minutes via Shirley, Birmingham Moor Street and Birmingham Snow Hill to Stourbridge Junction, with some trains continuing onward to Kidderminster and Worcester. There is one southbound train per hour to Stratford-upon-Avon. On Sundays, there is an hourly train between Worcester, Birmingham, Shirley and Stratford-upon-Avon.

On Monday to Saturday daytimes, 2 of 3 trains per hour terminate/start from Whitlocks End.

History[edit]

Originally called Whitlock's End Halt, the suffix was dropped on 6 May 1968. The station formerly had only one train per hour in either direction, this was changed from 1 October 2010 with the opening of a new turnback facility at the station which in turn led to the station car park being extended in September 2011 to accommodate increased demand.
