Built in the spring of 1854 by the London Tilbury and Southend Railway, Barking station is situated in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. As well as serving the London Underground District and Hammersmith and City lines, the station also runs regular main line services to London Fenchurch Street, Gospel Oak and Southend. The original station building was completely rebuilt in the late 1950s to coincide with the electrification of the railway – and upon completion, the new station was described by architect and historian Nikolaus Pevsner as “commensurately modern in outlook and unquestionably one of the best English stations of this date”. The new building was opened by the Queen in 1961 and has since been given Grade II listed status. Barking itself is notable for its sporting heritage. The local football team was founded in 1865 and the town was once home to future England captains Bobby Moore and John Terry – as well as England Rugby Union International Patrick Nolan.
