Wellow station November 1967


Description

The evening sun imparts a golden glow to the stonework of the empty station building photographed in November 1967. The signalbox is the distance is now the only S & D box to survive in its correct location and was last offered for sale at £30,000 having been converted to a dwelling. It is rumoured that artist Peter Blake, who designed the album cover for Sgt. Pepper, and converted the house, infilling the space between the platforms to make a sunken garden, entertained The Beatles here on more than one occasion. From a private collection of slides of the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway, taken in the year following closure of the line in 1966
