Snippet Detail

Plate 146 is a context view from the south from August 1966 of the ‘up’ platform (/location-summaries/structure-280180) and main station building.  This is the first view on the railway of the No 2 (medium) style of building.  It is constructed of brick with red sandstone, used for the quoins, plinth, and window surrounds.

At the time of the photograph the station was obviously well maintained and has well-tended gardens but by January of the following year (1967) the station was an unstaffed halt until final closure on 4 May 1970.
