Leigh Leigh Court Station map c1930

Leigh Court was the first station on the branch line to Bromyard. It was opened in 1874 and consisted of a single platform on the south side of the line with a small brick station building and signal box . There was also a small yard. There were no passing facilities. It served the nearby hamlet of Leigh. The map (above) is an extract from a 1930s Ordnance Survey map.

After closure the station buildings were abandoned and substantial remains were still in place in 2012 as seen in the four photographs below:
