BOA Railway Station

PRESERVATION enthusiasts have mounted a Green Plaque on one of Wiltshire’s most historic railway stations.

The station at Bradford on Avon, built in 1848, is one of the few remaining complete stations designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who built the Great Western Railway.

Bradford on Avon’s Preservation Trust has mounted one of its Green Plaques on the external frontage of the station to commemorate the event.
The plaque, identical to many others throughout the town, focuses on the architectural and historical importance of key buildings

It commemorates that the building is a rare example of a small Gothic station style designed by the famous Victorian engineer.
The station was opened in broad gauge in 1857 and converted to standard gauge in 1874. The goods yard and signal box were demolished in 1966 to form a car park.

The wording for the plaque was drawn up in consultation with the UK’s Railway Heritage Trust, and summarises the station’s 179 years’ existence.
Line operator Network Rail Infrastructure Ltd and station managers Great Western Railway have both supported the project.

Richard Stephens, of the Bradford on Avon Preservation Trust, said:

“There is all-round agreement that the plaque provides an appropriate welcome to the many users of the station.”
