Grantham Station: The Rebuilding Period in the mid 1980s.
The mid 1980s saw major demolition and refurbishment work take place at Grantham Station. All of the former Victorian buildings on platforms 2 and 4 were swept away and replaced with a modern smaller structure. The new building design did however retain some of the character of the original buildings and incorporated some of their features. The rebuilding work also involved the total replacement of the original footbridge and installation of a new one to allow clearance for overhead lines. Platform 1 saw general improvements to various station buildings, doorways and windows. The project included upgrading of the canopies and roofing work in all areas. John Wright was there with his camera to record some of these changes and we thank him for allowing us to use his photographs in this section.
