Download description pdf

This film is part of the Gordon Riley collection and captures the dreadful condition of the former Otley train station in West Yorkshire.

Title-Stationary Scenes

Title-A Railway Story


The voiceover says that the main train line through Otley was cancelled which meant that the train station fell in to disrepair.

The film opens with shots of a building and then a sign for `Otley'. There are parts of old buildings and railings lying all over the space, as if the buildings had been bulldozed. There are shots taken from different parts of the derelict station showing the awful condition that it is in.

Title-The End.
