Small office and toilet building at Belgrave & Birstall Station

Small office and toilet building at Belgrave & Birstall Station

Go back to the records from the Thurcaston map.
L2081. A view through the undergrowth towards the disused office and toilet buildings on the platform of Leicester's Belgrave & Birstall Station. Following the Line's closure in 1969, these buildings had been abandoned to the mercy of the elements and graffiti artists. However, despite their demolition in 1977, the site now provides the location for the terminus of the current Great Central Railway's preserved line.
