A local website mourns the demolition of the Victoria station and its replacement with a shopping centre and fllats.
“The now largely silent Victoria station was finally closed on 4 September 1967 and demolished leaving only the clocktower to survive amongst the Victoria Shopping Centre and flats.
Described as one of the worst blights on any UK city- the superb grand station which, if still in existence, would be in great need today has now been transformed beyond all recognition into a rather ugly looking shopping centre. The clocktower was spared but does not blend into its surroundings at all and stands as an overlooked monument to a once truly great station.”
