Ware sign

Ware is the last station on the branch from the West Anglia Main Line towards Hertford East. Ware itself is a pretty little town on the river Lea, and was once a significant brewing town with many maltings along the river. Now it still bustles with life and has an interesting little museum.

The front of the station building, seen from Station Road to the north:

A plaque on the front of the building commemorates the station's refurbishment in 1988:

Ware Town Council - Ware Station -
Built in 1843 for the Northern & Eastern Railway Company to the
design of Robert Stephenson, refurbished by British Rail in 1988.

When the ticket office is closed, entrance to the station is to the side of the building itself:
