The Beacon And Railway Hotel was built by the Midland Railway. Haresfield Station was opened in May 1854 to serve passengers on the Midland Railway line. The station was closed to passengers on 4th January 1965, but the trains still thunder past the pub on the Gloucester-Bristol line. The hotel has discarded its association with the railway and is now known simply as the Beacon Inn.
