Description:Photograph taken from Station Road.

The Station Hotel, originally built as the North Western on Victoria Road in 1866 (opposite the station) to provide accommodation for rail travellers. It provided all the latest facilities including a coffee room for reserved for ladies, a billiard room and kitchens on the second floor so guests would not be troubled by cooking smells.

The building was demolished in May 1972 and a motor salesroom was built in its place.

Bob lycett remembers:
"I had the privilege to have a pint or two in there as a young lad, as I caught the train at Stafford when I was in the army, what a waste of a beautiful building,"
