Tynemouth Metro Station

Tynemouth Metro station is one of the oldest stations and possibly the grandest on the Tyne and Wear Metro network. It was opened in 1882 by the North Eastern Railway and is now a Grade II listed building.

Only the small portion of this once vast station now used by the Metro has been refurbished. A regular flea market is held in the station buildings every weekend, with an occasional farmers' market too. The Friends of Tynemouth Station have also arranged book fairs and displays of artwork at the station.

In 2007, English Heritage placed the station on its "at-risk" register of notable buildings in need of restoration.

It's certainly a fascinating station, one of the finest I ever saw.
My visits there remind me of going to the seaside as a kid from Heaton station on the older trains we used to call multi's.
