Ascott-under-Wychwood residents will once again be able to benefit from special Saturday stops by Cotswold Line trains at the village’s station to go shopping in the run-up to Christmas.
The extra calls will be provided on the following Saturdays: November 30, December 7 and December 14.
The 08.43 from Great Malvern* will call at Ascott at 10.02, arriving at Oxford at 10.31, Reading at 10.57 and London Paddington at 11.29.
Return journeys are provided by two trains:
The 13.22 from Paddington to Great Malvern, leaving Reading at 13.53 and Oxford at 14.23, will call at Ascott at 14.45.
The 15.22 from Paddington to Great Malvern, leaving Reading at 15.53 and Oxford at 16.23, will call at Ascott at 16.45.
Details of these services and fares are available in online journey planners. Tickets can be booked in advance online or bought from GWR staff on the morning train.
* NB: This service is retimed from 08.48 to start five minutes earlier than the departure time shown in pocket timetables, to allow for the extra stop at Ascott-under-Wychwood. Passengers from stations between Great Malvern and Hanborough are advised to check the revised departure times in advance.
