Reach For The Sky

As most photo snappers know, the sky can wash out some of your favourite pics. I always carry one of these in my back pocket, even as a lens protector, if nothing else. A HRT (high resolution transparency) UV absorbing film and a ND filter. Compose, focus, then… SHOOT! Voila! The moody blues! Happy snapping.

Victorian railway station up for sale in South Yorkshire

Enthusiasts hoping to own a small part of Britain’s railway history are in luck. A Victorian station, complete with platform, waiting rooms and ticket hall, has gone on sale in South Yorkshire.

The former Chapeltown Central station near Sheffield will be auctioned next month with a guide price of £250,000. The auctioneer Mark Jenkinson & Son said the building – part of which has been converted into a family home – provided a unique restoration opportunity.

As well as three bedrooms and almost an acre of land, the building comes with the original ticket office and an overgrown station platform. And if you feel you don’t spend enough time in station waiting rooms, the property comes with first, second and third-class ones for you to enjoy.

The original station opened in 1854, but a larger one was built and opened in 1877. It was part of the former South Yorkshire Railway’s Blackburn Valley line between Ecclesfield East and Westwood, and was closed to passenger trains in 1954 and to goods trains in 1987.

Adrian Little from Mark Jenkinson & Son told the BBC: “Allegedly, there is a ghost of somebody or ghosts of persons who were killed during the air raid whilst they were loading Churchill tanks on to the railway track [during the second world war]. But the current owners never reported any paranormal activity.”

In May, the Yorkshire Post reported that Little Weighton station, a stop on the former Hull and Barnsley Railway, was on sale for £850,000. The station in the Yorkshire Wolds, which was closed to passenger traffic in 1955, now has five bedrooms and six reception rooms. It has a converted ticket office, waiting room and station master’s office.
