Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Compton railway station served Compton in the Berkshire Downs. The station closed in 1962. Compton was the largest station between Newbury and Didcot, serving the villages of Compton, East Ilsley and Aldworth. The station consisted of two platforms with the ticket offices and station buildings located on the Northbound platform. This was the only station with the exceptions of Winchester (Chesil) and Newbury to have a footbridge linking the platforms. To the north of the station was a goods shed plus cattle pens and three sidings which supported a busy coal trade and the loading of the products of the foundry. A signal box was located at the north end of the southbound platform and there was an unusual single-truck bay set into the northbound platform to facilitate the loading of a horse-box to the rear of a Didcot-bound train.show more
