1/154 Thurston Railway Station


Former railway station on the Bury St Edmunds to Ipswich line, now (apart from
the platform) a printing works. 1846, by Frederick Barnes of Ipswich for the
Ipswich, Bury and Norwich Railway. In the Baroque manner. Red brick with
quoins and dressings of gault brick. A band of gault brick at 1st and 2nd
floors and beneath upper window cills. Roofs mainly plaintiled, partly
slated. Chimneys of red brick with gault brick quoins. Complex plan form: 3-
storey centre block, deeply recessed between two narrow 3-storey wings; 2-
storey ranges of one window to left and right. Ground storey windows with
flat arches of gauged brick and small-pane casements. The hipped-roofed
centre block has a large window with wooden mullions and transomes at the
upper levels. The parapet-gabled wings have tall round-headed windows with
keystones of gault brick, above oeil-de-boeuf windows with 4 keystones. All
windows have splayed heads and reveals. An open entrance porch with 3
archways on brick piers: the central archway has rusticated voussoirs and is
much the widest and highest. A parapet over the entrance links the two wings,
and has moulded stone copings; the shouldered segmental form follows the
radius of the arch below. Although the station building is separately
occupied, the platform remains in use with a canopy cantilevered on cast iron
columns: the valance is renewed at the front in plain vertical boarding, but
at the side retains its scalloped profile.
