• In 2017 we were awarded a grant to investigate the feasibility of a new waiting room and community hub! This is now underway: we have a draft report which outlines three options - they all have a cafe, community rooms, a toilet and direct access from Brabyns Brow. We are consulting about which options should be taken forward. We are excited! Contact us if you have ideas or want to get involved.
To help our campaigning, we have just carried out our third annual passenger count.
We carried out a passenger survey in July 2017 so we know what improvements people want to see at the station. Making the crossing of Brabyns Brow(outside the station) safer and more convenient came out as a high priority, as did toilets and a café.
See NEWS section for more on these stories.
See our 'history' section for a 1960 picture of a bus at the station - if you can bear the excitement!
