The passenger station building at Micklehurst, seen in May 2015, 108 years after it closed. The dignified, well-constructed building is ideal for residential use, as indicated by the survival of similar structures at Uppermill and Friezland; only at Staley & Millbrook has the station building been demolished. The station house is constructed of dark red brick with string courses of blue engineering brick and pale stone lintels. The two-storey structure is almost square in plan with a single-storey office range extending to the north. The roofs of both the station house and the office range are hipped and slated, with restrained cresting and finials, and a cornice is provided using a row of bricks set at 45⁰ as dentils. ‘Totem’ signs reading ‘Station House’ and ‘Micklehurst’ are displayed. The station closed over 40 years before the British Railways totem era. The view is looking north-west over Station Road.
