Point of Interest Details

This is the last known surviving example of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s design for a small station. The Duke of Wellington, when given the Stratfield Saye Estate, that lies next to Mortimer, by a grateful nation, decided he didn’t want the railway near his house so Mortimer became his local station. The Duke did however use the station frequently for his visits to London. Tri-ang, makers of model railways, made a station based on its design. Dr Who’s assistant Sarah Jane Smith (Elizabeth Sladen) is seen arriving here in 1974’s ‘Planet of the Spiders’.
