Folkestone Railway Station (1961)

l1090077Here’s a picture of Folkestone railway station from David Lawrence’s new book about BR design. It turns out that Folkestone Central (1961), where I catch the train every morning, is an example of a transitional architectural style of station between the Festival style of 1951 and the more obviously contemporary…I was intrigued to find that Coventry station was also redeveloped in this style.

Euston is, I guess, the most famous of these kinds of station. I’ve posted about Euston before, here

Railway Propylaeum – The Euston Arch

I was born in Coventry, and have lived most of my adult life in Folkestone. Must be the stations.
