Station Name: FACIT

[Source: Alan Young]


1964 1: 2,500 OS map. Facit station closed to all traffic in 1963 but would have still been in use for goods traffic when the map area was surveyed, thus it is still named. 'The buildings are shown on both platforms, but the only awning is a short one on added to the up (east) platform building to replace the larger, earlier one. The station still possesses a signal cabin and goods warehouse, but some sidings have been removed and the line up to Facit Quarries has been dismantled. Specific mill names and their products are no longer stated as the OS was required to remove such information during the Cold War years in the interests of national security.
