Brickfield Cottages. Built in 1898 these lie in a close which would have been adjacent to the brickfield.

Railway
A stream rises to the west of the railway, passes under it and flows north as a tributary to the river Wid.
Goods and other facilities stretched south on the eastern side of the railway parallel to what is now Herrington Road. This area is now covered by a large station car park, accessed by a path running from Mount Avenue.  Some railway infrastructure buildings remain there but it once contained goods facilities including cattle pens and a railway turntable.
