Shotton Bridge railway station (site), County Durham
Opened in 1863 by the North Eastern Railway on the line from Sunderland to Hartlepool via Haswell, this station closed to passengers in 1952.
View south east towards Thornley and Hartlepool, also Stockton. The south-bound platform was still extant to the left, when this image was taken. The platform buildings, northbound platform (to the right) and street-level building on the bridge had all long-since disappeared, and the track-bed had become a public footpath.
