Verwood Village Scenes


Station Road


Part 2 - Pine View Road to Romford



Taken just past Pine View Road showing Station Road where it swung round over the railway bridge.

Just past the phone box was a path that went down originally to the railway but latterly to the Albion Hotel.

11 April 1976      [O/11]

The Albion Hotel seen from Lessers car park.

There is a nice picture to compare on page 23 of Verwood Village days.

I have to admit that I have had a few pints in there over the years.

Looking north from the railway bridge with the trackbed curving away to the right towards Alderholt.

The yellow car is turning into the premises of Lesser Building Systems who occupied the old railway station yard.

Romford East Farm is the other side of the bridge. Up on the hill behind the electricity pylon is the telephone exchange next to Warwick's Lane.

A view of the back of the Romford East Farm.

The Albion Hotel and station masters house are visible in the distance on the left. This picture is more recent than others in this sequence which explains why the Albion Hotel looks different from the picture further up this page.

This building may date back to Jacobean times.
