The former Station Master's house at Whetstone in Leicestershire

The former Station Master's house at Whetstone in Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Whetstone map.
L3182. Along with the well-known island platforms, the stations of the Great Central Railway's London Extension were all provided with houses for the Station Masters. Like the stations themselves, all of these houses were built to a similar pattern - meaning that the station house in Calvert would be like the one at East Leake. This example belonged to the Station Master at Whetstone in Leicestershire, and was photographed on 15th July 2002. The station itself has long since been demolished.
