"The Market Place station, which opened on 17th December 1842, was originally the northern terminus of the Brandling Junction Railway after it had been extended in that year (HER ref. 2288). In 1864 the North Eastern Railway closed this station and replaced it with one at Mile End Road (HER ref. 2462). After closure, the rails remained in situ alongside the platform at the Market Place Station until 1970. The station buildings and the massive stone pillars at the Station Road entrance are still more or less intact, and have been occupied by a garage firm for a good many years." - Sitelines
