Derelict and ruined stations evoke a variety of sentiments, but in January 1976, the remains of White Colne station had the chilling feel of a forgotten grave. In life, the station had served passenger trains on the highly individual Colne Valley and Halstead line between Chappel & Wakes Colne and Haverhill. The waiting room was an old carriage body and the booking office was at the opposite end on the other side of a level crossing. The passenger service ended in December 1961 and the last freight train ran through from Halstead in 1965.
