LMS Route: Nuneaton to Leamington
Bedworth Station: lnwrb3262
An external view of Bedworth Station's second and much
larger brick built main building seen in June 1951. A canopy has been provided
at the entrance to the booking hall for passengers arriving by road vehicle.
The chimneys provide a clue as to the number of rooms and the location of the
different facilities. On the extreme left is an office probably used by the
station master whilst to its right, and to the left of the booking hall, is
where the booking clerk and porters would be based. To the right of the booking
hall, which would have also served as a general waiting room, are thought to be
the ladies only waiting room with en suite ladies toilets. On the extreme right
is the gentlemen's toilet as evidenced by the louvres in the roof. Geoffrey
Hurst notes in his book 'LNWR Branch Lines of West Leicestershire & East
Warwickshire' that the there are only two notice boards with the one
nearest the door being a bus timetable.
