Kew Bridge Station still at risk

I am sorry to see in the autumn issue of English Heritage’s Conservation Bulletin that Kew Bridge Station remains on the Buildings At Risk register.

The station, which I have often used on the way to and from the river, was built in 1850 for the London and South Western Railway. Its architect is the distinguished Sir William Tite. He had just finished work on the splendid Windsor Riverside Station for Queen Victoria. Just five years later his Royal Exchange in the City was opened.

Kew Bridge Station first appeared on the danger list in 1998.
