Heritage salute for Bath Spa

Bath Spa station has been nominated as a Transport Heritage Site by the Transport Trust.

The graceful station was built in 1840 for the Great Western Railway by Brunel. President of the Transport Trust, Sir William McAlpine, unveiled the red wheel placque at a special ceremony. The award recognises the site as a place of significance and a point of focus of Brunel’s Great Western railway through Bath.

Says First Great Western Station Manager Peter Rignall, ‘The Great Western network showcases a pioneering phase of railway construction in this country’s history. Recent improvement work has seen the forecourt of the station renovated in keeping with its famous history. We are proud to see Bath Spa station recognised in this way.’
