Malvern Hanley Road Railway Station

Malvern Hanley Road railway station was a station on the Midland Railway between Great Malvern and Evesham. For most of its existence it was known on timetables as Malvern Wells MR to distinguish it from the nearby Great Western Railway Malvern Wells. It was renamed in 1951 only to close a year later.

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arm’s length.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    Ye elms that wave on Malvern Hill
    In prime of morn and May,
    Recall ye how McClellan’s men
    Here stood at bay?
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    All nature seemed to be
    In perfect harmony.
    —James F. Hanley (1892–1942 )

    The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
    And the highwayman came riding—
    Riding—riding—
    The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.
    Alfred Noyes (1880–1958)
