Poetry on Platforms: Celebrating the poetic heritage of the railway line to Ledbury

Poetry on Platforms

Ledbury Poetry Festival and West Midlands Railway are celebrating the poetic heritage of the railway line from Worcester Shrub Hill to Ledbury.

From the group of young poets and their families who visited each other in a little village called Dymock in the months before the First World War (whom we now think of as the Dymock poets), to the poets who have travelled along this line every summer since 1997 to share their work at Ledbury Poetry Festival, we are exploring how poetry connects us: from place to place, past to present, and person to person.

Visit the Poetry on Platforms website for poems and recollections inspired by this very special railway line, which ends at Ledbury: Junction for Poetry.
