With the news that work is underway to rebuild Kenilworth railway station, here are some photos showing what the station used to be like.
These photographs, provided by Warwickshire Railways, show the ornate design of the original station, which opened in 1844.
The new station aims to keep these features in mind, with a survey showing Kenilworth residents overwhelmingly wanted a ‘heritage’ design.
Kenilworth has been without a station since January 1965, when the station closed as part of the Beeching cuts.
Mike Musson from the volunteer group which has put the information together, has also put out an appeal for anyone with historic railway images, or facts and stories, to get in touch via the site and help the archive grow.
