Railway Station, St Austell, Cornwall. July 1990

St Austell station in the 1990s when the gardens and flower beds won awards. The original footbridge, which dates from 1882, was removed in 2019 after a modern, fully accessible bridge was built over the line. Owing to the age and architecture of the original bridge, campaigners were keen to ensure that it was not demolished. Working with the Railway Trust, Network Rail was able to secure a new home for the bridge as part of the Helston Heritage Railway. The photograph was taken for the 1991 book The Station Now Standing written by railway enthusiast Bill Pertwee, of the Dad's Army TV show. Photographer: Jonathan Barker
