walking from the station

Walking can make your journey into a pilgrimage. For more info click here. It is about an hour to walk from Colwall Station to Adhisthana. It is also possible to walk across the fields along footpaths, and you can find a suggested route here. Please note that this route may be virtually impassable in winter, and may be overgrown/wet at any time.


There are frequent trains from Birmingham and Hereford to Colwall or Ledbury, both about 5 miles away from Adhisthana, and a few direct trains from London to Ledbury. You can walk from Colwall which is the closer of the two stations, it takes around an hour and can be done via the roads or over fields using public footpaths. You’re advised to go to Ledbury if you need a taxi due to almost all the taxi companies being Ledbury based, so they actually charge more to pick-up from Colwall. You need to book a taxi in advance by phone to meet you from either station as there isn’t a taxi rank. Ask to be taken to Coddington Court (the taxi driver may know it as Coddington Court School). The fare is approximately £15.
