Title

London Road Low Level Station, Nottingham | Root

Description

    • The Great Northern Railway Station. In this photograph the station, which was designed by T C Hine, is nearing completion. The Great Northern Railway main line ran from London to Doncaster and was opened in c 1852, though a London to York scheme had been proposed as early as 1827. The Great Northern (Low Level) station was closed to passengers on May 22nd, 1944, although it did remain open to goods until and served latterly serving as a parcels depot until 1988 handling a million packages per annum. Thomas Chambers Hine, the Architect, was born in London in 1813, the eldest son of hosiery manufacturer Jonathan Hine. In 1834, Hine completed his architecture training in London and moved to Nottingham. In 1848, he won a national competition to design a pair of agricultural workers' cottages and published a monograph (MS 575/3) containing a specification and designs for them. Important commissions followed including the Nottingham Corn Exchange (1849-1850) in Thurland Street, a factory for Hine and Mundella Ltd (1851) in Station Street, and the rebuilding of Ogston Hall, Derbyshire (1851-1864) and Flintham Hall, Nottinghamshire (1851-1857). Hine was as versatile as he was prolific and applied a variety of styles to the many houses, hospitals, schools, churches and railway stations that he designed in the East Midlands. Hine's later projects included the rebuilding and renovation of the castle, shire hall, and courts in Nottingham. He was in partnerships with William Patterson in the 1830s and 1840s, Robert Evans until 1867, and finally, his son George Thomas Hine. T.C. Hine was also an enthusiastic building conservationist, lecturer on archaeology and architecture, and was elected a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1876. He died in Nottingham in 1899.
