Kidwelly Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Kidwelly railway station serves the town of Kidwelly (Welsh: Cydweli), Carmarthenshire, Wales. The station is situated on the coast just southwest of Kidwelly itself. Originally the station was the junction of the Burry Port and Gwendraeth Valley Railway. Nothing remains today to show the industrial heritage of the railway here. The station is unmanned and is a request stop, which means that passengers on the train must advise the train manager if they wish to alight at Kidwelly. Likewise if they wish to board the train they must indicate their intention to the driver as the train approaches. At the east end of the station is a signal box with an adjacent level crossing where the road from Kidwelly to the old quay crosses the railway line. The west end of the station ends with a bridge over the river. A World War II pillbox remains intact just before the bridge. On 20 June 1957 a RAF Hawker Hunter crashed 200 yards east of station with the death of the pilot.
