Liverpool Road Railway Station


Railway warehouse. c.1830, together with Liverpool Road
Railway Station (q.v.), by George Stephenson and his son
Robert; altered. Red brick in Flemish bond, with sandstone
dressings and slate roofs. Long slightly curved plan, convex
to the railway line and concave to the rear. Three storeys but
presenting only 2 storeys to the raised level of the track, 10
individually gabled bays arranged in pairs, with slotted
pilasters between each pair and at both ends, a moulded stone
cornice (carried round the whole), a small lunette on the
cornice in the centre of each bay, and stone gable copings
linked by short flats. In each pair of bays (except the 5th
pair, at the right-hand end), one bay has a segmental-headed
wagon archway with stone surround, 3 small segmental-headed
barred windows above the archway with linked sills and wedge
lintels (except the 4th bay where the wagon entrance has been
raised so as to leave only the heads of the windows) and one
2-stage loading slot to left or right, and the other bay has 2
loading slots. The last pair of bays both have the
wagon-archway form. The right-hand loading slot in the 3rd bay
has a hoist pulley over the lintel, and apparently altered
brickwork over the other loading slots suggests that all were
formerly equipped with similar hoists. The left hand return
wall has (inter alia) a small pediment to the centre, with an
oculus; the 3-storey 6-window right-hand return wall has a
doorway with stone surround at the left end of the ground
floor, 2 segmental-headed doorways at 1st floor level, and
narrow rectangular windows diminishing in the height. The
3-storey rear, with cornice and lunettes like the front, and
pilasters which have small windows, has 3-stage loading slots
arranged singly or in pairs corresponding to those at the
front, with hoists over all except one at the west end and 2
at the east end, doorways with stone surrounds next to the
single slots, and small rectangular barred windows with wedge
lintels. Interior: timber construction visible.
