    Great stuff mate, I visited this place way back in 1993, it looks like some clearance of trees has gone on?

    Here is a few of my oldies, hope you don't mind but its good to contrast:

    The bridge, before the big pointy fence was put up:


    Under platform tunnels


    Old posts that would have held the station sign


    Good to see you can still get round to see it, thanks for the update!

    The revery alone will do, if bees are few.

    TK421, they are abfab to compare to, wish i could have seen those sign posts though, Maybe a little more snooping and ill find them The main reason i went to take a few snaps is because Clowes have recently cleared the area making it a little more accessable - didnt stop me tripping over though! I think i may have found a signal stump jus outside the station but i didnt have time to take a pic at the time but will do next time
    A chance missed is another's opportunity

    A really nice tour and I like your pics a lot, Tom. Had to come back for another look.
    Just wish I still had an open fireplace...oh, and lived nearer...and own a wheelbarrow!
    Cheers.

    Good man Tom, glad you liked the old photos, there is a few more on my flickr page. Glad to see the site has been cleared a bit allowing for better photos mate.

    cheers

    Agree, it was very overgrown when me and Mendo visited the place a few years ago, looks a lot better for it too. Did you have a look in the warehouse building? it's lovely in there, especially in the underground vaulted area.

    Cheers,

    I didn't have a look the warehouse that day but i did go in once when i was 14 and yes it really is an ace building, im planning a trip to it soon because i would love to go in the cellars as i have never been in them. Im waiting to get a group of us before i next go in (Safety in Numbers)

    Many Thanks,

    Tom
