2/10001 North Platform Building, Railway


Railway station building. 1848 for Wiltshire, Somerset and Weymouth
Railway. Bath stone ashlar with stone-coped Welsh slate roof and brick
ridge stack with diagonally-set flue. T-plan with east (left) cross
wing. Tudor Gothic style. One storey. Gable-facing to left has 3-light
chamfered stone-mullioned and transomed window; on right is similar
window in canted bay flanked by chamfered 4-centred architraves;
decorative cast-iron brackets to mid C20 replacement canopy continued
around left return. Other elevations in similar style with similar
brackets to flat hood over booking hall doorway. Interior not
inspected but noted as having retained original features including
moulded cornices. History: the station was opened in 1857, the delay
in laying track from Trowbridge being caused by the crash of 1848. One
of two buildings which comprise a good "Brunel-type" group.
