Jackfield Sidings & Severn Valley Railway

Summary

 

 

Jackfield Crossing

Jackfield Crossing

Reputed to be the widest level crossing gates in Britain, the original Jackfield Sidings opened in 1934.

 

Following a landslide in 1952 the sidings were moved and a new halt was opened on 1 March 1954.

 

Near the Sidings is Calcutts House which dates from 1755. The area around the house was once occupied by the Calcutts ironworks and foundry. Although the house has survived to the present day, the ironworks and foundry, which ceased production by 1828, have disappeared.
