Avoncliff railway station serves the hamlet of Avoncliff in Wiltshire, England. It also serves the nearby villages of Westwood and Winsley, and Turleigh hamlet. It is situated next to the Kennet and Avon Canal and located almost adjacent to the Avoncliff Aqueduct so it is popular for walkers and cyclists who wish to travel along the canal path or the many picturesque walks around the station.
This station was a request stop, until July 2010. It now has trains scheduled to stop there, whether or not passengers want to board or alight. The station has two platforms, each long enough for 1 1⁄2 coaches, with a waiting shelter and original lamp-posts, and is served by Great Western Railway. Residents have voluntarily decorated the station with many pots of flowers and, to mark its 100-year anniversary on the 9 July 2006, decorated the station with bunting and dressed in Victorian clothing for the celebrations.
