Felsted Station House

Felsted Railway Station house on the former Braintree- Bishop's Stortford branch line in Essex (UK).

 

The station was built by Eastern Counties Railway engineer Thomas Brassey in 1866 but didn't open to passengers until February 22nd 1869. (long story!)

 

The station closed to passengers in 1952 although the line at this point soldiered on with freight mainly due to the then huge British Sugar factory next door and the odd through Clacton excursion train

 

The line at this point on the branch closed for good on April 1st 1969.

 

This is now a private house. Although i didn't see it i'm certain the platform on the other side is still there.
