Not to be confused with the Railway Tavern. The Railway Inn was the Head Quarters for the local home guard in WW2.
Charfield Railway Station closed for passengers on 4th January 1965, and for goods eight months later in September.
The building is now a private residence with nothing to indicate that it was once a pub. Inside the property there is a cellar, a feature fireplace and exposed beams and lintels.
