This old OS map overlaid on Google Maps shows where the old building was. The new cafe & loos are in the top left corner.

That's a handsome building - sort of rail platform architecture. Plenty of space to take tea and scones on the veranda out of the rain and sun.

Thanks for posting this, Hugh. I remember being treated to ice cream in a similar building in the same location when I was a child in the late '60s or early '70s. Would it still have been the same building?

Probably, Joe. It was still standing in 1951 and the new building looks like 1970s architecture or later.

Joe, you probably went to the steel framed cafe that replaced this building and was then in it's turn recently replaced by the current cafe during the HLF refurbishment
