Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Finmere was a railway station on the former Great Central Main Line which ran between Manchester Piccadilly and London Marylebone. It was opened in 1899 and served the nearby village of Finmere. The station was closed 1963 and the line through it was closed in 1966. Finmere station was on the Great Central Railway, the last English main line to be built in 1899 and the first to be closed in 1966. The section of the line between Brackley and Quainton Road was to be constructed by Walter Scott & Co., civil engineers from Newcastle-upon-Tyne at a cost of 420,000. The construction of the section through Finmere necessitated considerable earthworks, the remains of which can still be seen today. To the north, a cutting of 180,000 cubic yards had to be excavated, while to the south the railway crossed an embankment which required the excavation of nearly 200,000 cubic yards.show more
