SJ3789 : Edge Hill Station, Liverpool

taken 14 years ago, near to Liverpool, Great Britain

Edge Hill Station, Liverpool
Edge Hill Station, Liverpool
The original Edge Hill station on Stephenson's 1826-30 Liverpool to Manchester line, had a magnificent Moorish arch and was set deep in a sandstone cutting. The Crown Street terminus was too far from the city and a new terminus at Lime Street and this new Edge Hill station both opened in 1836. Trains were able to descend to Lime Street by gravity and were rope-hauled by a winding engine up to Edge Hill.
The station consists of two island platforms, each with an original building of 1836, making this possibly the oldest station in continuous use and in its original form in the world.
