Monkwearmouth Station Museum, Sunderland

  • Description

    "Photographed on 3rd March 2005 using an Olympus 400 Digital during a sunny spell following a light snow fall. Monkwearmouth Station Museum is managed by Tyne and Wear Museums on behalf of the City of Sunderland. It is a Grade 2* listed building and one of, if not the, finest examples of architecture in Sunderland. Built in 1848 as the terminus station for the Brandling Junction Railway it closed to passenger traffic in 1967 and became a museum in 1973. It is currently undergoing refurbishment and is due to re-open late in 2006." Photo by Martin Routledge, 2005.
