Welcome to the Cotswold Line Promotion Group

The Cotswold Line Promotion Group is an entirely voluntary organisation which was formed on 11th March 1978, with the aim of safeguarding and promoting improvements to rail and bus feeder services along the Oxford-Worcester line.

In 1986, the Group's activities were extended to include the Worcester to Hereford line.

It considers that a mixture of through and local services is essential to the very future of the railway.

The line had been at risk for some time and the Group has worked to increase use of it so that no further downgrading or, ultimately closure, would occur.

Membership stood at 1,639 on 31st August 2015.
