LYDBURY NORTH C.P., PLOWDEN, The Station House and The Station Bungalow

II

Station building and Stationmaster's house, now two houses. Circa 1865. Red brick with grey brick dressings, sandstone cills and lintels, and slate roofs. Shallow H-plan station building to north-west and stationmaster's house to south-east forming L-plan; simplified Tudor Gothic style. One and two storeys. Plinth and decorative pierced bargeboards with finials; stationmaster's house with semi-integral end stack to south-west and external lateral stack to north-west, and station building with stack off-ridge to north-west. Wooden 2- and 3-light cross casements. North-east front: former stationmaster's house to left with gable to front, first floor cross window and ground floor 3-light window; left-hand return front: three windows; slightly projecting to left with gabled semi-dormer; central panelled door with C20 glazed lean-to porch. Former station building slightly projecting to right: projecting gabled wings, that to left with 3-light window, that to right with 2-light casement, and both with slit openings above. Pentice roof over recessed centre with canted bay to right and C20 half-glazed door to left with overlight; VR post box in wall to left. Recessed trefoiled stone panel to rear. C20 lean-to addition to north-west. Plowden was an intermediate station on the former Bishop's Castle Railway (closed 1935) and was probably more elaborate than the others on the line because it also served the Plowden Hall estate (q.v.). The Bishop's Castle Railway was part of an uncompleted scheme to link Craven Arms with Montgomery in 1865; it operated under receivership from 1866 until its closure in 1935, but was never absorbed and remained independant to the end. Edward Griffith, The Bishop's Castle Railway, (Kingfisher Railway Publications, May 1983).
