LMS Route: Rugby to Tamworth
Atherstone Station: lnwr_ath3937
A lineside view of Atherstone station after closure and the
removal of the platform canopy circa 1975. Although vandalism, neglect and
disuse, after Atherstone was made an unstaffed halt, had taken their toll by
the mid 1970s, the removal of the awning on the Up platform enables one to
appreciate Livock's design once again, in this study looking towards Stafford.
Out of sight to the right of the building was a 'bus shelter', the only comfort
the present day passenger can expect.
