A WW2 protected Railway Control Centre still stands in the station car park. The building is a rectangular windowless concrete blockhouse. It is now used to store spare parts by Railtrack contractors. It has a dog leg air lock at each end with steel gas tight doors. Inside one side is a large rectangular room running the length of the building. There is a central spine corridor with smaller rooms along the right hand side. Internally there are no original features remaining apart from the doors.
