Preston Trampower has submitted an application to convert the old Station House in Gamull Lane into an office.

The Grade II listed Victorian railway station in Ribbleton was formerly used as a Station Master’s House and Booking Office and is now a private house.

It has undergone some alterations including a new window to the East elevation over one of the main external doors.

A maximum of 12 people would be employed at the new offices. An attendant would work in the kitchen and be a local person as would at least one other staff member.

The two storey building is formed of stone walls with pitched roofs in slate tiling.

The land around the building is primarily overgrown vegetation with some paths in flagged stone.

The roof to the southern end of the building is in much disrepair with around 50 per cent missing.

The building is in a fairly weathered state with algae growth to the external stonework and peeling paint to the stonework and timber window frames, which will all be tidied and restored with new methods.

The outbuildings – two sheds and a greenhouse – have since been removed and there is a great deal of clutter in the external gardens.

The access to the building is currently via existing steps and pathways which will be improved, surfaces cleaned and repaired.

The external site will be improved and six new parking spaces, which includes one disabled parking space, will be in close proximity to the building on Halton Place.

There are good bus links to Station House, with a frequent number of bus services using Gamull Lane, and with the nearest bus stops approximately 70m away.

The design access and heritage statement in support of the alterations said: “The site and building has fallen into disrepair. A new use for the building has become available and the best way to protect listed and heritage assets is to keep them used and maintained.”
