Booking Office at Rothley Station, Leicestershire

Booking Office at Rothley Station, Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Rothley map.
L3240. All of the original intermediate stations on the London Extension were built on the 'Island Platform' principal, and all to a very similar, but not identical, design. All of them had separate booking offices, waiting rooms and gentlemen's toilet blocks - this example being the Booking Office at Rothley Station. Access to the station was via a covered staircase that led down from the road bridge above directly to the Booking Office ticket window. The station has been superbly restored by the Main Line Steam Trust to reflect the period when the original Great Central Railway was still relatively new.
