Ironwork by Andrew Handyside at Hartlepool Railway station, County Durham.

Andrew Handyside who built Friargate bridge in Derby also built quite a few Railway Stations in the UK and around the world, Since starting my Handyside research and launching this blog I am begining to discover more and more of these stations.
Here is a recent discovery in County Durham, UK. Here at Hartlepool railway station you will find lots of decorative ironwork by Handyside.

I would like to thank Ian Stubbs for finding this station for me.

Map Location:
View my Andrew Handyside World Map to see the exact location of this railway station on my world map.
My world map is the result of hundreds of hours of research into the company, plotting out each item as I find it.

Can you help find more Andrew Handyside stuff ?
If anyone out there knows of any other railway stations around the world bearing the Handyside badge that I have not mentioned yet then please get in touch with details, location, photographs etc.

Thanks
Andy
