SJ39NW MERSEY ROAD 778-1/3/104 (North side) Station House


Small railway station-master's house, now house. Probably c1848, for the Liverpool, Crosby and Southport Railway Company. White-painted render on brick, red tiled roof. Single-depth double-fronted plan parallel to railway track and very close to it, with a small side wing at each end. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and 2 windows, symmetrical. The ground floor has a Tudor-arched doorway in the centre, with a C20 part-glazed door under a shallow fanlight without glazing bars, flanked by 3-light wooden mullion windows with top-hung casement openings in the centre lights. The upper floor has 4-pane sashes above these windows, and a raised square plaque in the centre, with a moulded surround but no visible inscription. Roof with oversailing barges pierced by gable chimneys, that at the left (west) end of brown brick, tall, with a cornice, but the other cut down and rendered. Small single-storey side wings, that to the left with a window and that to the right with a doorway. Rear and interior not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: probably Crosby's first railway station. Interesting survival of very simple early railway architecture, comparable with two other surviving examples in Southport (e.g.No.57A Portland Street).
