Salisbury sign

Salisbury was the destination of a cycling trip from Christchurch. After being almost entirely on our own for the journey, it was quite alarming to be in the bustle of a busy city centre. Still, after wandering around Salisbury and visiting the Cathedral we were able to take in the station.

The station has had two main entrances. The older of the two is no longer used as a station entrance:

Salisbury old frontage

Next to the older building is the newer red brick frontage:
