Snippet Detail

Plate 127 is a photograph of Crosby Garrett from about 1900.  It shows the Main Building and Booking Office and on the left the Stationmaster's House (/location-summaries/structure-269790).  In the foreground is the Cattle Dock (/location-summaries/structure-269830) and following the Passenger Platform (Up) (/location-summaries/structure-269770) into the photograph you come to the three arch bridge on the right (/location-summaries/structure-269800).  Visible under the bridge pier is the Waitiing Room (Up) (/location-summaries/structure-269740) which is set into the retaining wall and, unusually, is on the same platform as the Main Building.

It was originally intended that the Stationmaster's House would be built on the hillside on the right of the bridge but the photograph shows the actual position. 

The Main Station Building is of the No 2 (medium) style, set near the end of the Passenger Platform (Up) because of the siting of the station along the 55ft deep cutting.
