#035 Richmond Station's transformation into a thriving community hub

Welcome back to the next episode of Inside Yorkshire. In this episode Susan finds out  about the transformation of Richmond Station into a community hub attracting upwards of 350,000 visitors each year. We hear about the work that has been carried out over the years  sympathetically changing the internal layout of the building without losing it's original character and charm. 

About the Guest:

The guest in this episode is Eileen Halliday, the general manager at the station. She talks enthusiastically about the history of the building and the work that has been carried out transforming it into a popular meeting place for locals and visitors alike.

The Station is a stunning riverside Victorian railway building; brought back to life as an art gallery and exhibition space, cafe, and community venue for groups, meetings and classes, and home to a variety of independent businesses.
