Market Rasen Station Restoration – Welcome Our History As the townspeople of Market Rasen sadly kept seeing the Grade II Market Rasen Station building gradually falling further and further into decay it was apparent to all that help to restore the building was urgently required. Local partners formed a Community Interest Company to take the project forward, and a successful application was made to the Heritage Lottery Fund. The first round grant enabled us to make urgent repairs to the roof, and thankfully the building is now watertight again. The next stage is to renovate the building into a heritage centre telling the story of the Station since the railway came to Market Rasen in the 1800’s. There will be a community meeting place for special interest groups to meet, and five offices suitable for small or start up businesses, where people may be taking the step to move from their home office to larger, more professional premises. Many thanks to all the people and organisations that are supporting the Market Rasen Station restoration project and in particular to players of the National Lottery! In keeping with its status as Grade II listed, every effort is being made to preserve the fabric of the building, as can be seen in these photographs, with the rafters being repaired rather than being replaced if possible. This is the platform facing roof, the car park facing roof has already been inspected and has been lined prior to the slates being reinstated. Everyone is happier now the building is watertight again!
