LYRS2736. The magnificent station building, now Grade I Listed, early 20th century with cabs outside. John Betjeman described the imposing frontage as 'the most splendid in England' and Nikolaus Pevsner considered it to be one of the best stations in the country. Its grandeur owes much to the influence of the Ramsden family who owned most of Huddersfield at the time it was built in 1846/50. It was operated jointly by the London & North Western Railway and the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway and they each had their own Booking Offices in the pavilions at the end of the colonnades which extended from the central block with its giant portico. Above each pavilion is the crest of the respective company but in place of the LNWR's it is that of the Huddersfield & Manchester Railway who had promoted the line prior to becoming part of the LNWR.
