How to read these lines - taking Pewsey as an example.  It had the 787th steepest drop (out of 2570 stations) across Great Britain - down 82% on the previous year, with just under 48,000 journeys made as opposed to almost 270,000 the previous year.

Note that these are April to March figures, so the year "sample" includes the deepest of lockdowns and restrictions and predates summer 2021 when some growth back was seen.
