SU8263 : Crowthorne Railway Station

near to Crowthorne, Bracknell Forest, Great Britain

Crowthorne Railway Station.
Crowthorne Railway Station.
The very sad state of the railway station in 1977 in the 'good old days' of British Rail. Apart from the metal shed for cycles on the right, the station layout is the same today (2007) though a small brick building provides a waiting shelter. Hanging baskets of flowers (albeit, artificial) decorate the platforms. The vandalism is now nothing like as bad as in this photograph.
The station was unmanned but now there is a ticket office open for short periods in the day; a ticket machine provides the service 'out of office hours'.
The trees have mostly gone and have been replaced by apartment buildings.
