Audley End sign

On a showery August Bank Holiday I bought a Network Railcard from Cambridge station and decided to visit Whittlesford. Unfortunately, when the train got there the doors would not open so I ended up being carried onwards to Audley End. I got off there and, slightly anxious about risking a penalty fare for overriding, I went to the ticket office and explained things to the lady there. She wrote me a short "please pass this passenger back to Whittlesford" note with the station stamp on, and apologised.

In fact, I didn't mind very much at all, since I was able to collect Audley End and still had time to get off at Whittlesford. Here's the front of the station building, showing the distinctive arch:

The rear of the station building is on platform 1, for trains up to Liverpool Street, where a modern shelter has been built:

Across the footbridge is a smaller building on platform 2:
