Cutlers Green Halt on 30th June 1951. This was the last station before Thaxted, initially the station had a bench, it was not as primitative as Henham as there was a gents toilet. The place was remote, merely a platform in the midst of fields. A footpath led off to the village.

Above is Thaxted in 1952. Below are photographs of the station and the engine shed. This station was very remote and it was a very long walk into the town of Thaxted, hence the need for the car.
