|Type:||National Rail (Snow Hill Lines)|
The station was opened in 1862 by the Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway. At first the station was nearly two kilometres away from the village of Hagley and facilities were rather rough and ready. In 1884 after the Great Western Railway took the station over they completely rebuilt it due to rising demand as the village had expanded towards and around the station. Brick buildings with canopies were built on both platforms, one still remains on the Worcester side of the station. The original GWR footbridge survives, and is grade 2 listed. It was used by Hornby as the prototype for their GWR footbridge model.
The station is managed by West Midlands Railway with trains several times an hour in both directions most days.
