    According to my Dad's friend there was an issue with the land owner who wanted to redevelop the site for housing.
    Yes; a classic case that illustrates why all the players must have a share of the ownership rights - otherwise!

    Cheers for the comments folks. Love it when on-the-hoof explores turn out better than expected. Amazing how quickly nature has clawed site back. Those silver birches seed really quickly. Engine shed has solid walls and the roof is in good nick so hopefully it will be around for long enough to be saved. Don't hold out much hope the station though.

    Cheers Shatner’s. Really easy access as it's on what appears to be common land. Surprised it hasn't been covered on here recently. Well worth an hour's mooch.
