Railway station. Opened in 1907, re-using walling stone and dressings transferred by the Midland Railway from their earlier station in Northumberland Street which was built in the 1870s. Possibly by E G Paley. Squared coursed sandstone with sandstone dressings and steep blue slate roofs with 2 horizontal green slate bands. A central 2-storey entrance block is joined to gabled pavilions by 6-bay links which have Lombard friezes below the eaves, and a continuous drip mould rising over mullioned windows and square-headed doorways. The pavilions each have windows of 3 pointed lights, and foiled circular windows within the coped gables. The central block has glazed doorways on the ground floor, pointed windows on the 1st floor, and a clock face within a stone gable that is treated as a dormer. In front of the main block is a large porte-cochere with a pitched roof on iron trusses which is partly glazed and partly slated and is carried on 4 cast-iron columns. 2 chimneys on left-hand link, one on each gable of central block, one on right-hand link, and one to right of right-hand pavilion. All have dressed stone caps. The side elevations have Tudor-arched gateways leading to the central concourse and linking the front building to 2 further pavilions in a similar style. Interior: front range contains some decorative glazed tiling. Large concourse area has stone-flagged floor and a partly-glazed roof carried on iron or steel lattice trusses.
