Primary / Secondary References

Figure 77 is a plan and elevations for the stone-built type of shelter, from an official drawing.

Plate 202 is a photo of a fine example of the stone waiting shelter at Armathwaite, pictured on 8 June 1968.  Note the diagonally-boarded panels to the doors, the pierced cresting to the roof and the bargeboards, all echoing those to be found on the main building.  Compare the shelter barge boarding with that at other locations, often being to an alternative design.

Plate 205 shows Armathwaite signal box (/scrca/structure-summary/298220) which was brought into use on 16 July 1899.  It is of wood construction, measured 16ft 6in x 11ft 6in x 12ft, had a 16 lever tumbler frame, and a renewal cost of £260 (W & W Committee Minute No 17176, 18/5/1899).  It closed on 15 January 1983.

A Midland corrugated-iron oil store is again in evidence (/scrca/structure-summary/298210).

In the distance is the waiting room on the 'up' platform.


Structure Location Map

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
