John Bedford, Esq., Leominster THIS line will diverge from the line of the Grelt JL Eastern and Western Railway near Worcester, and proceeding by Bromyard will end at Leominster, at which point it will unite with the proposed lines connecting Hereford and Shrewsbury with North Wales. The communication by railway between these impor- tant towns and the contiguous hop and cider districts has been entirely left unprovided for by existing arrange- ments, and this line is brought forward under the auspices of the Great Eastern and Western Railway Company, on the strong representations and request of a large and most influential body of the landed gentry of the neigh- bourhood. The object proposed is to make a direct communication between Leominster, Bromyard, and Worcester, which latter town has always been the natural market for the produce of these districts, and to afford the inhabitants the most direct communication with London, as compared with other lines, by upwards of 30 miles. No person will be liable for more than his deposit till the act is obtained, and power will be applied for to allow interest at £4 per cent. on all calls from the time of their respective payments, as well as to limit the liability of the shareholders to the amount of their subscriptions.
