Malvern-Ashchurch Route Maps

These have been taken from a 1946 one-inch map (Sheet 143) of Worcester to Gloucester, which is out of copyright as of this year. The image below shows the entire route of the Malvern-Aschurch railway from Great Malvern station, down to Hanley Road, Upton, Ripple, Tewkesbury and finally, Ashchurch, where the old route north to Bredon on the Birmingham-Gloucester line can also be seen. The route leading east out of Ashchurch is the now-defunct Ashchurch, Evesham and Redditch line of which only the first mile or so remains, serving the Ministry of Defence's storage facility for armoured vehicles. Click here for a large version of the map.

Looking more closely at the map, this image shows all four Malvern stations (Malvern Link, Great Malvern, Malvern Wells (GWR) and Malvern Wells/Malvern Hanley Road (MR) in all their glory:

1: Great Malvern to Malvern Hanley Road (Hi-Res Version)

2: Malvern Hanley Road to Upton-upon-Severn (Hi-Res Version)
