Colchester North Station (Colchester)

Colchester North is one of two stations in the historic old Essex town of Colchester, the other being Colchester Town.

It is situated on the Northern outskirts of the town, beyond the Roman Walls.

The station, until recently known simply as Colchester, was originally built in 1843, but was rebuilt by the Great Eastern Railway's Chief Engineer, Mr Wilson, in 1896.

Lewis Cubitt built the railway hotel, which is now part of a hospital.

Trains from London depart from Liverpool Street Station, passing through Stratford (Essex), Romford, Brentwood and Chelmsford

Further on, trains run to Ipswich, Norwich, Bury St. Edmunds and Ely.

From a junction at Colchester, a line runs to Clacton and Walton-on-the-Naze.
