View of the much larger station nameboard erected by British Railways in 1952 now declaring Leamington Spa (Milverton for Warwick. The name change was an accurate description as the station was in reality significantly closer to, if not in, Leamington Spa. However this name change caused passengers much confusion. What is the difference between Leamington Spa (Milverton) and Leamington Spa Avenue? A missed connection is the answer. To counter the confusion the former LMS board has been employed to display the following chalk notice Passengers for Banbury, Oxford, Reading, Didcot & beyond change at Leamington Spa Avenue Station NOT THIS STATION'.
