What a truly great piece of architecture, sadly it looks like it's now gone.
The original looked more like a C19th farmhouse - for many years one of the main activities was the unloading of horse shit from London, which was used in the many nearby market gardens and orchards. Paper from the Cray valley mills would go in the other direction.,


Which station was that?
Please don’t click on my profile face. Thanks.

A local vehicle hire firm has put up a couple of pictures on a local history Facebook page from the early 1980s when they were operating out of a portacabin next to Barnstaple train station - they're a lot bigger now with premises on a commercial estate and the site is now the station's car park.

I know nothing of the lorries but always enjoy a Mk2 Transit.  They did a nice line in Cavaliers, too.

That's clearly a DKW, but the car in the third row is an Anglia.

 

Yes, the DKW which I chose to ignore for row counting seemed to be forming a private row which would have made the Taunus, Anglia, Ponton etc. row number 4.  Marvellous photo. When I rode my Peugeot BBct moped to Eindhoven, some barsteward pinched my small saddle bag containing the plug spanner.  I bought a new one and it also was stolen a few weeks later, this time at Venlo.  Roermond mopedists were not so light fingered.
