Irthlingborough Highway Board - An ordinary meeting of this Board took place on Wednesday, when there were present Mr. J. W. Watts (in the chair), the Rev. Canon Barker, and Messrs. Wykes, Turnell, Everett, Coales, Walker, Thompson, Woolston, Newett, and Nunnely.
The Midland Railway Station at Irchester
The Surveyor called the attention of the Board to the fact that the Midland Railway Company were building the railway station at Irchester on the bridge, and this he considered would be an obstruction. He had written to the company on the subject, and had received a reply to the effect that the road would be 30 ft. wide, and they proposed to set the booking office back 6ft., giving a total width of 36ft.Mr. Turnell said he had seen the place alluded to. He thought it would be much better for the public than at present, and would be a grand improvement.The Rev. Canon Barker thought the Company should provide a space where carriages could stand without coming on to the public road. After some further discussion, Mr. Coales proposed, and the Rev. Canon Barker seconded, that a letter be sent to the Company by the Clerk, asking them to consider the question of giving more space for vehicles on their own ground.
