Hampton Loade

Our sleepy station in the heart of Shropshire

A perfect place to start a walk or cycle along the Severn

Hampton Loade Station

Hampton Loade is a little gem of a station! On most days trains pass each other here bringing ‘noise and bustle’ to this otherwise sleepy hamlet. Once the trains have gone, you can literally hear the butterflies flapping their wings! The River Severn is a short walk down the lane but, sadly, the last current operated foot ferry in England has now ceased operation.
