Charlbury ticket office reopens after flood repairs

The ticket office at Charlbury station reopened last week after a 13-month closure due to damage caused by a burst pipe just before Christmas in 2022.

Until Great Western Railway appoints a new dedicated member of staff for the station, the booking office will only be open from Monday to Friday, between 5.45am and noon.

The interior of the building suffered extensive damage when a water pipe burst in December 2022, flooding the ticket office and saturating the ceiling, walls and floor.

GWR has replaced the floors in the ticket office, booking hall and waiting room and repaired the ceiling and electricity supply.

Work is continuing to complete other repairs to the station, including replacing damaged exterior woodwork and repainting the Grade II listed building, opened in 1853, which was designed by the famous Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the Oxford Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway.
