Description:Alton Station, looking towards Denstone. It was built in an Italianate villa style in about 1849. The station was used by the Earl of Shrewsbury, and in 1892 had a luggage lift to hoist the Earl's baggage up to the entrance to Alton Towers. It can be seen just to the right of the railway bridge arch. The three-storey tower to the left contained the Earl's suite of waiting rooms. In 1954 the station was renamed Alton Towers. After the line closed in the 1960s, the station was acquired by the Landmark Trust.
