Signal Box

The refurbishment of Brading Signal Box is now complete.

Brading Town Council lease the Signal Box along with the main railway station building and one of the waiting rooms on Platform 2 from South West Railway, who generously gave us a considerable grant towards the cost of renovating the signal box.

The Railway Trust were also very generous and contributed towards the replacement of the roof and guttering and the design and placement of the new windows. They also donated a further grant towards the cost of replacing the wooden staircase, which was found to be in a very bad condition with rot apparent throughout.

One of our Volunteers, George Wheeler, also generously donated a considerable sum of money to help with the cost of the replacement staircase.

The Isle of Wight Society voted Brading Town Council as the best Community Restoration Project in September 2021.Their Award Scheme is for the recognition of good building work that contributes to the character of the Island. Among other things, it also encourages a high standard of conservation of buildings in their settings.
