What to see and do at Shenton Station and Cutting

Steam Train Access Shenton StationP1220227 Scaled Aspect Ratio 785 360


The cutting is a walkway rich in woodlands that, if followed, can lead you to an array of hotspots in the local area –  including the Shenton Aqueduct and the Stoke Golding.

There’s also Shenton Station and the connecting disused railway to take a visit to. Here there are toilets and a café, and if you are lucky you may catch sight of a steam train.

You can also make a detour from here to walk uphill to Bosworth Battlefield Centre and the connecting country park.


Shenton Station was originally part of the Ashby to Nuneaton railway during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The county council bought the site in the 1970s, and in 1990 the railway track was extended from Market Bosworth to Shenton by the Shackerstone Railway Society.
