About Stamford Bridge Station


"Stamford Bridge was one of the larger stations on the line. It was sited immediately west of the Church Road level crossing and had two facing platforms. The main station building, which incorporated the stationmaster's house and booking office, was at the east end of the down platform adjacent to the level crossing and was a typical G T Andrews structure; it resembled that at Holtby, but was slightly larger. It comprised a two-storey 'T' shaped brick house, end-on to the platform, with a lower floor bay window overlooking the down platform. A single-storey brick extension housed the waiting room and toilets; the overhanging roof formed a short canopy supported on four iron pillars. There was another single storey extension to the rear. A timber waiting shelter, built to the standard NER design, was sited on the up platform. Access to the booking office was through a small portico with four stone pillars in front of the building, facing onto Church Road. A crossing keeper's house was provided on the up side, east of the level crossing."

(Congratulations to 'bexter & nads' on being the FTF this cache!!)
