Waunfawr Station Building

This building lay derelict and roofless for many years.

With the coming of the reconstructed line, and a remodelled  station layout, the building was in the way.
In order to remodel the layout of the station, the old building was taken down in 2000.

Although carefully deconstructed by the WH Heritage Group, sadly the numbered and stored stone was inadvertently used as fill for the embankments by the contractor. 

However, all is not lost as a rebuild is planned in NWNGR style when funds become available, with the interior  redesigned to suit 21st century requirements. The  wooden buildings currently in use at Waunfawr have been provided by the WHRS as a temporary measure.
