WELFORD ON AVON is a popular village approximately four and a half miles from Stratford upon Avon and close to the North Cotswolds and the Vale of Evesham. The village has a range of local amenities, which include shop, butchers, junior and infant school, three inns, sporting facilities and church. More comprehensive facilities are available in the nearby towns of Stratford upon Avon (four miles), Evesham (eleven miles), Alcester and Birmingham (twenty-nine miles). The M40 motorway, Junction 15 at Longbridge near Warwick, is located approximately ten miles away giving access to the region's motorway network.
The site is situated on the northern edge of Welford on Avon and south of the village of Binton. The site boundary abuts the Evesham Road to the north. The southern boundary is bounded by open space north of the River Avon and Welford Boat Station, affording attractive views over the River.
DESCRIPTION The site area is approximately 4.45 acres (1.8 hectares) identified edged red on the plan.
The site was originally the location of Binton Railway Station, which was in operation from pre-1884 until 1949. The line was used by freight until 1960 when it was then disbanded. Following this, the site was used for the storage and distribution of propane gas. The site is currently vacant although redundant buildings and hardstanding remain. Evesham Road provides vehicular access into the works with hardstanding surfacing and scrub planting covering much of the site. There are areas of woodland to the east and west. An informal footpath link extends through the woods in an easterly and westerly direction towards Binton Road and local bus stops to the east and Blackcliffe to the west.
