Station Master’s House
Liverpool Road station in Manchester, built in 1830, is the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station. The Liverpool and Manchester Railway was engineered by George Stevenson, known as the “Father of the Railways”. We are working in partnership with the Science and Industry Museum to find an urgent new use for the former Station Master’s accommodation, which is part of the wider Grade I and Grade II listed site. This handsome regency house, at the fulcrum of Manchester’s industrial heritage where railways and canals meet, would make a vibrant setting for a short break in a burgeoning cultural quarter.
