History

Ashley Hill opened as a single platform on the 13th of August 1863. Doubling of the line through the station happened during 1885. The station was rebuilt when the line up Filton Bank was quadrupled and reopened on 30th April 1933. A goods yard with six sidings was opened to the north of the station on 4th August 1925. This was served by a 33-lever signal box which opened on 5th July 1925, replacing an earlier signal box that was sited at the north end of the station. The second box closed on 19th October 1970. The station closed to passengers on the 23rd of November 1964 and goods on 1st November 1966. The line up Filton Bank was reduced from four to two on 2nd February 1984.
