Inside a 'tin pagoda'
Inside a 'tin pagoda'
The three buildings at Denham Golf Course station are the only surviving examples on the Network Rail system of the once numerous GWR design for minor stations, although others survive on heritage lines. Apparently they came in various sizes with the same general appearance and metal construction. It has been stated that all three here are different, but any difference between the two waiting shelters on the platforms must be very minor. Both appear to be about 80 corrugations long and 28 deep, with a central doorway (no door) 18 corrugations wide.
This one is on the up platform. The greenery is ivy growing in from outside. The colour scheme is supposed to be restored to the original GWR standard of 'light stone' and 'dark stone'. The buildings were built around 1912 and are grade II listed.
