REDRUTH STATION HILL SE 64 SE (south side) 11/303 Waiting room on down platform 29.9.87 of Redruth Railway Station GV II Station waiting room. 1888, for Great Western Railway Company. Timber frame and cladding, with cast-iron brackets to the canopy. Shallow rectangular plan of 7 bays, but with the monopitched roof cantilevered over the platform as a deep canopy (except in the 7th bay, which may be an addition). The roof is carried by pairs of stop-chamfered posts, with cast-iron brackets to the cantilever beams, and the first bay is open, forming a porch to the entrance gateway and to the footbridge (q.v.); the other bays have lapped weatherboard walls, with double doors in the 4th bay, single doors in the 5th and 6th, and 4-pane sashed windows in the 2nd, 3rd, and 6th. The canopy has a deep fretted valance and moulded cornice. Beyond it at the right-hand end is a 7th bay in matching materials, with 2 small high-set windows in the front and a doorway in the end wall (probably an office store, or cloakroom). The rear has 4-pane sashed windows in the 4th and 5th bays. History: part of the improvements connected with the dualling of the line. Listed as an unaltered example of its type and date.
