3/39 Station House


- II


Station master's house and station buildings. 1847. Probably by
G T Andrews. Brown brick, Flemish bond, ashlar dressings, Westmorland slate
roof. L-shaped plan. 2 storeys, 3 x l bays with single-storey 3½-bay wing
to rear right having entrance to house at 2-storeyed east end.
and station buildings, now truncated at west end. Main (east) facade
(house): chamfered quoins, sashes with glazing bars in stone architraves
with moulded sills to both floors; those to ground floor slightly eared.
First-floor sill band, deep moulded eaves cornice, hipped roof with central
corniced ridge stack and another to rear right eaves. Right return
(platform front): house: 1 bay as front but with ground-floor bow window with
16-pane sash; single-storey range has bays defined by pilaster strips
supporting entablature with stone cornice and blocking course with sash with
glazing bars on left and a blocked door. Left return: house has 1 bay as
front; single-storey range: as platform front with 4-panel door in stone
surround. The line from Pilmoor (to the north-east) to Boroughbridge was
opened in 1847, and was extended to join the York-Harrogate line in 1875.
The new line branched to the east of the old station in order to avoid the
difficult bridges over the Dishforth and Catterick road and a new passenger
station was built. The old station buildings were converted to cottages and
the goods line continued until 1964. The platform cottages were attached to
the west of the surviving structure and photographs were taken before
demolition (Hoole, p56). The house is identical to the (demolished) station
masters house at Market Weighton, by G T Andrews c1847 (Hatcher, pp 109,
112). J Hatcher, The Industrial Architecture of North Yorkshire 1985.
