In the far recesses of Castle Woollatt's archives, I rediscovered this scraperboard image, circa 1984. I thought you might be interested. It measures 23cm x 15cm.
In the 60's, Dr Beeching closed down innumerable rural railway lines and took away the tracks, rendering many railway buildings defunct. Some people bought up the old stations, including platforms and converted them for living, which is what these two have done. So where the 8.45 to Paddington used to thunder through, a row of cabbages now flourish.
