Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Baynards was a railway station on the Cranleigh Line. The line was single-tracked and opened on 2 October 1865. The station comprises the stationmaster's house, two waiting rooms, covered platforms, storesheds, a booking hall, a porch and a large goods shed. The station covers in all 0.45 acres (1,800 m2). Its construction is owed to Lord Thurlow, the owner of nearby Baynards Park, whose land was on the route of the proposed railway line. As a condition of sale, Lord Thurlow insisted on having a station built to serve his estate, despite there being no nearby settlement. The station was also used as the local post office in times when up to 30 horses and carts would queue outside on market days.show more
