Story

The last original railway building on the site of the old Bishop's Castle Railway Station needs rescuing before it is lost forever. The objective of the project is to restore the 1865 building in sympathy with the original structure ensuring the building's future and enabling the heritage of the building to be understood by the wider public. Following restoration, it is proposed that the building could be used as an exhibition venue, a meeting room for small groups and as an interpretation space for understanding the role of the Bishop's Castle Railway in the development of the town.

    With work on the walls complete the new roof is in the process of being built and as can be seen in the main photo, after 6 weeks of work, the builders have finished on time and all who have seen it have remarked on how good it looks. Many thanks to all those who have helped us to get this far. Our next stage is to raise the money for bespoke doors and windows to finish the outside.

    Here is our building after the walls have been rebuilt and repointed with the new roof yet to be built. After many years of dereliction the building is starting to come to life again.

    The longitudinal supporting steels have now been craned into place and will be welded to the cross beams below, so the weighbridge plates can go back on very soon. We nearly have enough funds to start on the roof and the walls of the building, so we continue with our fund raising efforts.

I have been a part of the Bishop's Castle Railway Society since about 1993 and have seen the weighbridge building slowly deteriorate for many years, so am really excited about the opportunity to save and restore the last remaining railway building in the town.
