Railways of the Vale of Evesham
Pebworth/Broad Marston Halts
Broad Marston Halt was opened on the 17th October 1904 to serve  the villages of Broad Marston, Pebworth and Mickleton. It had a single 100ft  platform at first but another was added in April 1907 with the doubling of the  Honeybourne-Stratford section. Although goods facilities were requested for the  halt, none were ever provided and the halt was closed on the 14th July 1916 as a  wartime economy.

On the 6th September 1937, Pebworth Halt was opened as a  replacement. The halt was situated to the south of the site of Broad Marston  Halt at the point where the road between Broad Marston and Mickleton passes  under the railway. A interesting note in the halt's history appears to be the  fact that it took over nine years for the Board of Trade to inspect; presumably  as a result of World War Two. The halt lasted until the 3rd January  1966.
