This quiet station is only staffed Monday-Saturday until lunchtime.
Road directions

Photographic notes
An interesting shot can be had from the station footbridge of trains arriving, with the road crossing and signal box behind them.
Shots can be had in both directions and from both platforms to suit most lighting conditions throughout the day.
