Furze Platt

A long time ago, before I started collecting railway stations, I went on a training course in Maidenhead, and spent long bored summer evenings wandering around the area. I remember seeing Furze Platt but never finding out where it went. Returning to the area (taking advantage of a new Day Ranger ticket) I resolved to explore what turned out to be the branch to Marlow.

The station sits in a residential area north of Maidenhead, at this level crossing, seen from the east:

The building next to the railway has been extended but was obviously once associated with the railway:
