On Bastille Day 2019, the Sealed Knot was out in force - a bit late to defeat the annual Vogon invasion...

 

As part of the Ledbury Celebration, where members of the Ledbury Food Group were selling local produce in St. Katherines car park, you could have a bespoke poem typed on...

Still no proper disabled access to Ledbury station

Ledbury station will soon be the only station in the south-west Midlands (according to this recent written statement to Parliament dated 4th April 2019) that does not have step-free access to all its platforms.  The photo (right - courtesy Wikipædia), showing the only access to the Birmingham / London platform, was taken in 2008.  Nothing has changed since, except the bridge has been repainted!

We sent the following message to the North Herefordshire Tories via their website:

Dear Mr. Wiggin,

You might be aware that 73 railway stations are scheduled to receive funding to provide access for everyone to all platforms:

https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/access-for-all-73-stations-set-to-benefit-from-additional-funding

Ledbury station is not on this list, despite the eastbound platform falling foul of the Disability Discrimination Act ever since it became a legal requirement in 2004 for service providers to make 'reasonable adjustments' in relation to the physical features of their premises to overcome physical barriers to access.  It is not just disabled people who are disadvantaged: mothers with baby buggies, cyclists with heavy panniers and everyone with heavy luggage are also affected.  I note the last other station in this area without such access, namely Worcester Shrub Hill, has been included.

Why is Ledbury station not on the list?

Update: to which we received the following reply:

“Thank you for your correspondence regarding Ledbury station.

On 4 April the Department of Transport published the disappointing news that Ledbury Station has not qualified under this round of the Access for All scheme.
