Dovercourt station is only a short distance away from Harwich Town so it was eminently possible to walk between the two. Dovercourt was originally separate from Harwich but now it's just a suburb.

The front of the station building, now in private hands but no less grand for all that:

The entrance to the station is just to the side of the building. Looking back out of the exit:
