Railway station, 1849 by Frederick Barnes of Ipswich. In the Jacobean style. A symmetrical composition comprising a single-storey central booking hall, and a pair of 2 storey wings each with a flanking staircase tower. On each side is a screen wall with a gateway giving access to the platforms. Red brick, with much use of gault brick for dressings. A little diaperwork in burnt headers. Cornices and string courses of Caen limestone. Plaintiled roofs with parapets and parapet gables (the latter were formerly of Dutch gable form, and the crenellated parapets of the towers replacecupola roofs). Chimneys of gault and red brick with clusters of 2 and 4 octagonal shafts with moulded bases. Deeply-splayed windows in gault brick frames, and heavy wooden mullions and transomes. Each wing has a shallow 2-storey bay window. The central entrance is in the Baroque manner with rusticated pilasters framing an inset doorway with an arch of limestone; the flanking platform gateways are of similar but plainer form. A flat canopy is cantilevered over the platform, supported on cast-iron columns and with a trelliswork valance. The building is partly subdivided for light industrial use.
