Blakey Station

A rather cold and lonely view of Blakey station, from the William Hayes collection of postcards, the Archive asked: “Where was Blakey station?” Russ Pigott tells us: ”Blakey station was near where the Farndale road turns off the ‘Blakey Road’ There is still the wall of one side of the bridge which took the road over the railway. The ‘station’ was the junction where the Rosedale East and West Branches separated. Nothing now remains of the buildings on the site.” David Richardson agreed with this siting, adding: “The area is now a car park.”
