Abandoned station near Heathrow in the 1970s – can you recognise it?

Abandoned station near Heathrow - can you recognise it?

Terry Davies from Oz got in touch and asked if I could identify the location of this abandoned station, located somewhere in the Heathrow and Amesbury area.

I don’t recognise the buildings, so I thought I’d put it to my trusty readers, as well as asking on the urban75 bulletin boards, where most questions get swiftly answered!

Terry explains:

I have some excellent B & W photos taken in 1970 of an abandoned station somewhere in southern England. Only clue to whereabouts is I was photographing planes landing at Heathrow on the same day.

The station looks well and truly abandoned, although the building seems in reasonable repair.

Any ideas?

If you know where this station is – and perhaps have other photos to share – I’d love to hear from you!
