Ashdon Halt revisited
When I posted the video of disused stations in Essex, I was rather taken with Ashdon Halt. Its platform building, an old coach, was still in situ years after the last train called.
The video above shows Ashdon Halt in 2011 1997 and whilst open.
The station was on the old Great Eastern line between Audley End and Bartlow, It opened in 1911 and closed when the line was closed in 1964.
You can read more about it on Disused Stations.
