Early Modern


Extant Building

Disused stone built station of 1842 on the Brandling Junction Railway opened in 1839. A small chapel-like station with a tall narrow projecting cross gable having triple lancet windows, above which is the Brandling family crest and the prophetic initials 'BR'. Towards the end of 1842, Joseph Colthurst, the B.J.R. manager, was able to report that "the Felling Station House had been contracted for at £175 and will be completed in 6 weeks from the 7th inst.". Thus the building was probably completed in December 1842 or January 1843. The old Felling station remained in use until c.1896, when the railway between Gateshead and Pelaw junction was widened from two tracks to four, and a much larger station was opened on an island platform between the two new tracks.
