A railway station at the popular East Yorkshire seaside resort of Bridlington has recently had a historic map partly restored thanks to the efforts of the local community rail partnership.
A tiled North Eastern Railways map fell foul of station demolition taking place at Bridlington station in 1987, and it was thought the map had been destroyed. Yorkshire Coast Community Rail Partnership’s Rachel Osborne, with the help of local railway historians, has managed to track down the remaining tiles for restoration and resetting.
The partnership funded work by Hunmanby craftsman, John Edmond to restore the tiles ready for display.
An unveiling ceremony took place on Monday 17 January as the tiles returned to their rightful place on the station. The map was unveiled by Bridlington’s deputy Mayor, Councillor Mike Heslop-Mullins.
