Overview

Close to Bridgend, this small station serves the quaint village of Pencoed. The current station is the second one on the site, the first one being built in 1850 and closed in 1964 as part of the infamous Beeching Act.

Richard Beeching, the chairman of British Rail, ordered a great number of stations and miles of lines were decommissioned in the early 1960s, in an effort to streamline the rail service. This led to mass protests and even today, Beeching's decisions are considered highly controversial. He was and still is, accused of ignoring the social repercussions of closing the stations, such as causing unemployment to rise and increasing the use of cars in a time when only the most affluent could afford them. It has been suggested that the bias towards road use was caused by a conspiracy against the railways involving those in power, and the road lobby.
