Wraysbury railway station

is a railway station serving the village of Wraysbury in Berkshire, England, as well as the larger villages of Stanwellmoor and Poyle.

The station is on the line between Windsor and Eton Riverside and London Waterloo. Services are operated by South West Trains.

 

The Railway came to Wraysbury in 1848, now forming part of the One from Waterloo to Windsor. lt enabled many to travel swiftly and economically outside the village for the first time, shortening travelling times by horses and enhancing trade, agriculture and the expansion of property development, the latter necessitating the opening of a second station at Sunnymeads in 1927.

 

In the History of Wraysbury published in 1862, G.W.J. Gyll extolled the benefits to the village: “Railways have much improved the locality and the condition of the people also, and it is a powerful solvent to diminish provincial rusticity, local and self-importance; class prejudice and all the elements of isolation melt away in its presence. The railway through our parish has been of great use to it; has enhanced the value of property, as is the case wherever such a project has been executed, despite the fears of those who repressed the enterprise.
