Former Railway Hotel at Oundle Station, built by the London & Birmingham Railway in 1845, the architect was John Livock who was also responsible for the principle stations on the line, whch explains the similarity between the designs of the Hotel and Oundle station. The line crossed the road in the foreground with the Station to the left.
