GWR Route: Banbury to Wolverhampton

Leamington Spa Station: gwrls850a

Close up showing the glass cupola located above the junction of the down platform stairs with the subway

Close up of image 'gwrls850' showing the glass cupola which provided natural lighting to the subway at the junction of the stairs to the down platform. The window in the side of the platform structure was also located to provide natural light to the staircase itself whilst the metal railings and handrail can be seen to the right marking the point where the staircase arrived at the platform. The light fixed to the end column was lit by gas which was perpetuated in the new building at the insistence of the local gas company who were major clients of the GWR.
