This week marked the opening of the newly refurbished Morpeth Railway Station. The station, initially opened in 1847, was in desperate need of updating, and following an 18 month transformation stands as a brilliant landmark for Wansbeck.
The station, a key point on the East Coast Line, now boasts a brand new cafe and modern ticket office, in what was before a dilapidated crumbling building, home to damp and pigeons. It has also maintained it’s architectural roots by reinstating the 15 tall chimneys that give the station it’s unique appearance.
Ian remarked “It’s absolutely fantastic. A big thank you to everyone involved and in particular the Greater Morpeth Development Trust.”.
“I encourage everybody to get along to see for themselves the brilliant work that has been done here by those who have made it happen”.
