    The hidden views of Salisbury Railway station.

    When people visit Salisbury in the UK, they always see Stonehenge, the cathedral or the town centre; but how many of you will arrive from London to Salisbury by Train?

    Built by the London and South Western Railway 1 March 1847. It has seen a lot of history, including a terrible crash which happened in 1906 involving a boat train and a milk delivery train (more on that later).

    There are six platforms, including a hidden platform which I have shown here. The entrance shown is where passengers once entered the station. The new entrance is around the corner and along the street, but this is where it all began.

    The staff don't like to go to this part if they can help it. My friend who works here as a guard says its creepy, she says she feels like she's being 'watched'. Apparently this was one of the earliest parts of the station to be built.

    This is the waiting room passengers would have waitied in. It's now the railway social club, the newer passenger rooms are along the platforms.

    Passengers would have stayed at this place known as the London hotel.

    It's now an Italian resturant.

    Passengers arriving by horse drawn carriage would have stopped here.

    This post is where the horses would have been tied up.

    Lastly this road is where the railway workers lived.

    Louise - do you have PP software? I would try to recover some of the shadow areas, and cropping wouldn't hurt to lessen the expanse of pavement.

    Thanks for posting these - I love history and pictures really add to the presentation.

    What is PP software? At the moment I have Google Picasa, but i am going to get Photoshop Elements when I can. ihave Windows XP home Edition, so it should work on that?

    If you can afford it, buy Adobe Lightroom.
    PP stands for post processing.

    Hi Lightroom doesn't work on Windows XP apparently.
