I think the article may be https://www.getreading.co.uk/news/berkshire-history/gallery/lost-abandoned-railway-stations-you-19865668 ?   Not 100% sure as the words long-forgotten have changed to lost-abandoned ... but same sort of thing.

That's an older (February) version; https://www.getreading.co.uk/news/berkshire-history/berkshires-long-forgotten-railway-stations-20398688 was put out today with fewer pictures, more words, and more intrusive trails and adverts.

I think that the attached is Welford Park station down platform. It is right by the car park for Welford Park (House)  - better known for its snowdrops and GBBO.
