Main station building
including booking hall
at Terminus Station
SU 4211 4/238 18.3.66


Built 1839-40. Architect Sir William Tite. This was Southampton's original
station and is one of the earliest surviving pieces of railway architecture
of any scale in England. Only the facade and shell of the central building
are original. Italinate style. Three storeys. Stuccoed. The ground floor
is rusticated and projects with 5 round-headed arches, the outer ones now
filled in, the remainder forming a portico, with a balustraded parapet over
the whole having a clock in the centre. The upper portion of the front is
flanked by pilasters of quoins. The first floor windows are in moulded architrave
surrounds with pediments over. Heavy modillion eaves cornice. Later ground
floor addition to the north and contemporary one storey, one bay addition
to south. This station was the prototype for the style of local London and
South-Western region railway stations into the 1860s. (See St Denys Station
Osborne Road (qv)).
