Leamington Spa Station

For some years Steelway have been contributing to the major turnaround in the fortune of Chiltern Railway’s listed station at Leamington.

Various schemes sponsored by Chiltern Railways and Network Rail have contributed to the restoration of the mock Regency building with its Art Deco interiors and award winning gardens.

Steelway began working at the site some years ago with the installation of replica GWR spear top fencing and gates. Next came the recreation of the period station name boards with Steelway providing the substantial replica cast iron supporting columns.

Most recently Steelway contributed to the National Award winning (conservation section) of The National Railway Heritage Awards with their tastefully designed protective balustrades and specialist replication work to the listed fireplaces together with spectacularly designed mirrors. This is not the type of work which would normally be considered as Steelway core business but with close scrutiny by the Steelway Heritage Team and, as always, absolute attention to detail products were created which became the focal point of the rooms and were duly recognised in the award process. 

Testimonial

"I recently went in to the Leamington Spa Station waiting rooms for the first time, what a surprise and what a joy! The elegant room beautifully decorated, parquet floor, enormous glass light globes and uplighters, framed old railway posters around the walls, the large healthy potted plat in the corner and the wonderfully comfortable light oak benches – no upholstery but perfecting shaped for comfort and lovely to look at – I could hardly believe my eyes. My 25 minute wait went very quickly – I think I could happily and comfortably have sate there marvelling for a couple of hours! I can understand why waiting rooms are generally so basic and functional and vandal-proof, but that makes the discovery of those at Leamington all the more delightful."
