Former Railway Freight Warehouse at Akeld Station

  • Description

    "Freight and agricultural traffic continued along this part of the railway from Cornhill (Coldstream) until 1965. Grain and fertiliser were stored in the warehouse until collected by farmers, and heavy goods were loaded on and off the trains by a one ton crane located by the entrance to the warehouse, now converted. The former edge of the station platform is visible in this view." Photo by Nigel Stickells, 2005, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
