Marston Green Station
Marston Green Station
Very few level crossings survived into the 70s on electrified railway lines. Here's one of them.

At the southern end of the platforms (closer to the current car parking) was once a level crossing and footbridge and original waiting rooms/ticket office.

Take a look at the old OS maps LinkExternal link to see the 1920s road that once crossed to Chapel House Farm and Canterbury Home, all now swallowed up by airport development.
