1862 - Pewsey Vale rail link to London

In 1862 a new railway created a shorter and direct route from the Pewsey Vale to London Paddington. It connected the earlier Berks and Hants Railway with the Devizes branch of the Wilts, Somerset and Weymouth Railway. On 11 November, Pewsey Station opened, and Woodborough Station opened around the same time.


On 2 July 1906 the line became part of the Reading to Taunton line following the opening of the Castle Cary Cut-Off.
