The twenty metre cast and wrought iron vaulted train shed of Queen Square Station (now Green Park Station), designed by the Midland Railway chief engineer J.S. Crossley and built between 1868-1869 by Andrew Handyside of Derby. Closed in 1966, it was restored by Stride Treglown Partnership and paid for by Sainsbury’s supermarket (visible in the rear) for their parking and the occasional crafts fair. It has been known as Green Station since 1951 and owned by the Bath City Council since 1974.

  1. Ooh! I do like this framing!

    That’s a pretty neat train station/parking lot, too.

  2. Very nice shot.

  3. Good for the supermarket. Such a nice place deserves attention and saving and I think your photo is nice too.

  4. I enjoy surfing your blog because you always manage to do something interesting. I particularly like this photo, perhaps because of the patterns of lines. It strikes me as very attractive and well-done!
