History Trams, Trains and Stations

Wootton Station (Steam)

REF NR: 291

1. The arch of the Station Road overbridge has been infilled and a wide ramp has been built to allow cycles and walkers down onto the trackbed. All evidence of the station has been cleared away although the stationmasters house still stands and is in private occupation. The original concrete station sign has been recovered and now stands on a new platform.
The platform extended under the arch of the Station Road overbridge The booking office and waiting room were built into an adjacent arch. The stationmaster's house was built alongside the road in 1907 and in 1910 the platform was extended to accommodate longer trains. The 'join' can clearly be seen in the photograph below. Earth movements on the bank forced premature closure of the station in 1953.
