1970s Grade Ii Listed Overall Roof Somerset Station Train Shed Frome Hannaford


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the 1970s, offering a rare glimpse into the internal view of Frome Station in Somerset. Designed by none other than Isambard Kingdom Brunel's assistant, J R Hannaford, this architectural marvel showcases the remarkable overall roof that spans across the station. Frome Station, which first opened its doors in 1850, holds a special place in British railway history as one of the few remaining stations with a timber through train shed. Its significance is further highlighted by its Grade II listed status, recognizing and preserving its unique heritage. As we delve into this image, we are transported to an era when bustling platforms and steam-filled air were part of everyday life at Frome Station. The timber train shed gracefully arches overhead, providing shelter for passengers awaiting their trains or bidding farewell to loved ones. The attention to detail and craftsmanship evident in every inch of this structure is awe-inspiring. It stands as a testament to both Brunel's visionary designs and Hannaford's ability to bring them to life. Thanks to STEAM Museum of the GWR (Great Western Railway), we can now appreciate this snapshot from history—a reminder of how architecture intertwines with our daily lives and shapes our collective memory.
