Following on from our B&W Station Survey carried out during the late 1970s, we decided to undertake a similar project in 2014 & 2015 to see how things have changed. This collection of images will hopefully provide a useful comparison. As you will see the exterior of most of the buildings on platform 1 have retained their original overall character with only minor upgrades to windows and doors etc. However as we have seen, the buildings on platform 2 were completely swept away in 1985 and replaced with a sympathetic design that thankfully incorporated some of the original GNR Victorian features.
If you have any personal memories, images or additional information relating to the station buildings for potential use in this section, we would love to hear from you. Please note: Unless stated otherwise all images are Copyright: Mel Smith.
