Bagnalls were commissioned to deliver heritage painting works at Cambridge station by Greater Anglia. The works required the intricate renovation of the college roundels that are embedded into the stone walls of Cambridge’s picturesque railway station. Consolidation and repair works had to be undertaken to stabilise the roundel mouldings, prior to any cleaning and painting works being completed. Bagnalls’ trained heritage painters undertook the complex works with care and precision. The end result has transformed the roundels and can now be enjoyed by many generations to come.
This busy station in Eastern England, with over ten million passengers per annum, serves the city of Cambridge and is a main commuter route to London, King’s Lynn, Norwich and many local towns. The station was originally built in 1845, by Francis Thompson and was granted Grade II listed status on 10th May 1962. Our conservation works have now been entered by Greater Anglia into the National Rail Heritage Awards, with judging and awards to take place later in the year.
