This photograph shows the station master’s house in Marden. As you leave the railway station it is the first building that you see. It was built for the station master, a significant position which is reflected in this imposing house.
The style of architecture also reflects increasing use of bricks, which can be attributed at least in part to the railway, which dramatically reduced the cost of transporting slates, bricks and other building materials.
This aspect of the influence of the railway is discussed in the evidence given to the Committee by local farmer, William Knox Child. Read the evidence he gave to a House of Commons committee to find out more.
Find out more about one of the Station Masters in Marden, Samuel Saxby.
