GWR Route: Banbury to Wolverhampton

Leamington Spa Station: gwrls865

East end of the up platform showing where it changed from timber to brick construction

The east end of the up platform showing the showing the point where the platform changed from timber to brick construction. John Copsey writes 'The right-hand end of the original main up platform was just to the left of the bookstall' indicating he thought that the platform extension started at this point. However John has made a mistake because if other contemporary photographs are examined there are 24 columns in the above structure the same number recorded by the 1853 records referred to in image 'gwrls850b'. The up platform was therefore same length when first built as it was when the above photograph was taken. Its possible the brick facing was required to be constructed due to the extension of the subway through to the LNWR station.
