Almost certainly somewhere in rural England. Just a bit of history, in the 60s a certain Dr Beeching, the chairman of the Nationalised British Railways at the time, published a [series of reports](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_report) that lead to the closing of a few thousand miles of branch line railways. It effectively gutted one of the most comprehensive rail transport systems in the world, and as such is an almost universal target for scorn in Britain. It perhaps didn’t help that the replacement buses were not nearly as effective and also that Beeching had direct interests in the bus companies succeeding.
In terms of this particular station, it it nothing unusual, the British countryside is now littered with abandoned railway infrastructure. A lot of lines have been put to fairly good use as cycle paths (by companies like [Sustrans](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustrans)), and a lot of stations are now houses. Still, would be nice to see the railways put back at some point, we are really starting to have problems with the amount of cars around.
