View of the L & B station master's house which was located in Top Yard at the end of the sidings

As part of its original station, the London & Birmingham built a single-storey station master's house in the top yard. A curious site was chosen for it, immediately beyond the end of the main sidings facing onto the high cutting wall at the back of the yard- It did not survive as a residence long and was converted into a workshop for repairing wagon sheets. After the sheeting department closed in 1930 the house was used as a small warehouse and stationery store.
