SK5348 : Hucknall Central Station

taken 52 years ago, near to Hucknall, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Hucknall Central Station
Hucknall Central Station
At its peak Hucknall had three passenger stations, the first of which was closed as early as 1931. In the 1960s the other two closed: Central in 1963 and Byron in 1964 (although the town has since regained a station on the Robin Hood Line). Central station was typical of the Great Central Railway's London extension with an island platform and buildings in a Jacobean architectural style; it opened in 1899. After closure the line continued to be used until September 1966. By the time this photograph was taken, about two years later, the track had been lifted but the buildings remained, albeit in a dilapidated condition - there was no attempt to prevent the public gaining access. See SK5348 : Hucknall Station on the Great Central Railway for a view of the station as it was in Edwardian times.
