blocks of 9 windows. Ashlar with moulded cornice. Low slate roof. Achitrave
surrounds to windows, panelled on pavilions with cornices over. console brackets
to sills. The centre pavilion has 1882 addition of elaborate baroque clock tower
with lead dome. Glazed roof added between pavilions over pavement. Projecting
later 4 window office block added to west with architrave framed sashes. The
east end of Station facing Valley Bridge Road is of 5 bays divided by rusticated
piers, the frieze cornice and blocking course breaking forward over them. Moulded
sill course. 3 architrave surround round headed large windows with fixed glazing
bars and 2 doorways in similar surrounds, upper parts glazed as windows. The
passenger train shed, comprising platforms 3, 4 and 5, retains the original G T
Andrews roof structure, a unique survival for a station of this size. The wood
and glass roof is supported by the walls and a central row of cast-iron columns
with broad curved girders, light iron trusses carrying the roof structure across
the two aisles so formed. The two adjacent sheds covering platforms 6, 7 and 8
respectively, were probably the original Andrews goods station. Nos 6 - 7 have
a light iron truss roof structure carried on the flanking walls similar to the
passenger shed and No 8 platform has a timber king post roof also carried on
walls. On the wall of the former station buffet is a polychrome tile map of
the North Eastern Railway network circa 1903, a particularly fine example of its
kind.
