Bingley sign

We arrived at Bingley having walked there from Crossflatts, the next station up the line. The walk demonstrated just how times had changed in terms of transport as the canal paralleled the road which in turn paralleled the railway for a time. Once we got there the station was eerily quiet.

The front of the station:

The station features this monogram, which we couldn't decipher:

The station entrance is higher than the platforms, so we enter the footbridge, with platform 1 opposiite ahead and the steps to platform 2 right and left:
