Warkworth Station Station Gallery 2:
September 1972 - July 2014


Warkworth station building, looking south in September 1972. The platform has been demolished but the building is in residential use. The ‘whistle’ sign is a reminder for engine drivers that the level crossing is a short distance ahead.

On 24 June 1996 No.82217, propelled by 91117, is passing the site of Warkworth station on the 14.00 Glasgow Central to London Kings Cross. The relay room in the foreground, carrying a Corporate Identity nameplate, is on the opposite side of the level crossing from the signal box which, demoted to a gate box, closed in 1967.

The porter’s wing of Warkworth station is seen in August 2001, looking south-west. The main section of the station building, in the background, consisted of two storeys standing on a tall basement.

Warkworth station’s road frontage is seen here in April 2005, looking north-west. This view across the forecourt conveys the generous size and dignity of the station building; its position, well set back from the road, allows the design to be appreciated fully. The principal element is the two-storey station house and offices, gaining prominence as it is raised on a basement so that the lower storey corresponds to the level of the former platform. The single-storey wing on the left, again standing above a basement, is understood to have housed the private waiting room of the Duke of Northumberland. The two-storey building, on the right, at road level was the porter’s accommodation. The buildings are all in residential use. The pale sandstone is now restored to its original colour; the pictures taken in 1972 and earlier show it in its soot-blackened state.

The road frontage of Warkworth station, looking north-west in April 2005. The coal depot used to be in the foreground, and the single-storey building with the wide metal door was formerly of two storeys and is thought to have been associated with the coal depot. The main station building stands beyond.

The platform frontage of Warkworth station building, looking east in November 2010. The building is Grade II listed and is one of the larger ‘Tudorbethan’ designs by Benjamin Green for the Newcastle & Berwick Railway which opened in 1847. As listed status indicates, many of its original features can still be enjoyed. The former open verandah of the single-storey wing (right) has been enclosed.

Looking north from the level crossing in April 2013, the station building at Warkworth can be seen – with difficulty – behind a tree to the right of the railway tracks. The overgrown ramp of the cattle dock is visible to the left of the rails, beside the warning sign.
