Historic railway station up for sale

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 | COMMERCIAL PROPERTY

An old Victorian railway station dating back to 1854 has been put up on the market for sale and will be auctioned next month.

Located in South Yorkshire near Sheffield, the former Chapeltown Central train station is set to be auctioned with a leading price of £250,000.

The station originally formed a part of South Yorkshire’s Blackburn Valley train line between Westwood and Ecclesfield East.

Its initial infrastructure opened to the public in 1854 but grew in size after a larger building was established in 1977. The station ran to full capacity for roughly 100 years, before it was closed to passenger trains in 1954 and to goods vehicles in 1987.

The property, occupying over one acre of land, is complete with an overgrown platform, ticket hall and a number of first, second and third-class waiting rooms. A section of the building has even been renovated and converted into a family home with three bedrooms.

Auction specialists and chartered surveyors Mark Jenkinson & Son says the establishment presents itself with a unique restoration opportunity, inspired by a number of recent nearby renovations.

Previously in May this year, the Little Weighton station in the Yorkshire Wolds underwent a restoration to now have five bedrooms and six living rooms, along with a renovated ticket office, waiting room and office for the station master.

Senior partner and auctioneer Adrian Little said: “Allegedly, there is a ghost of somebody or ghosts of persons who were killed during the air raid whilst they were loading Churchill tanks onto the railway track [during the second world war]. But the current owners never reported any paranormal activity.”

Chapeltown Central station will be auctioned on September 4, 2018.
