KINGSTON UPON HULL

TA0928NW ANLABY ROAD 680-1/21/264 (North side) Former Immigrant Station and railway platform

GV II

Former immigrant station, now a social club, and railway platform. 1871. By Thomas Prosser. For the North Eastern Railway Co. Extended 1881. Altered late C20. Yellow brick with ashlar dressings and hipped slate roofs. L-plan. Single storey; 13 windows, all top hung casements. Off-centre late C20 door flanked by windows, 2 blocked. At the rear, a railway platform with renewed hipped canopy on cast-iron columns. To south and east, ashlar screen walls with segment-arched openings. This building is of historical importance because it was used exclusively to handle immigrant passengers from north-west Europe to America. They travelled by sea to Hull, then by train to Liverpool, where they embarked for America. For health reasons, amongst others, they were segregated from other passengers. This makes the station part of the heritage of many Americans.
