The building on the north platform was particularly interesting, despite the fact that it was partially obscured by scaffolding, and a few of us chose to draw this. I have since found out that the exterior has remained more or less intact since it was built to Brunel's design in the early 1800s, with the original decorative cast-iron columns still supporting an old-style wooden canopy. Now designated a Grade II listed building, I suppose the scaffolding was evidence that some much needed restoration work was being undertaken.
