'Abbotts Ripton' signal box.
This signal box did not had not long left when I took this photo.
Note the spelling of Abbots Ripton on the box has two tt's in Abbots, which is not how the village is spelt now on Goggle.
There was a station here at Abbots Ripton, which is a village between Hutingdon and Peterborogh. The box was just to the north of were the the station was.
The the track is in a cutting be for going onto an embankment and over a bridge at 'Kings Ripton' and then the ECML runs across the very flat fens to Connington were a tip for waist soil and ballast was built in the 2nd World War.
Abbotts Ripton is better known for the wrong reasons because of the rail disaster here when a signal froze in the clear position on the 28th January 1876 ,which let an express passenger run into the rear of a coal train.
There are three tracks here, Up fast Down fast and Down slow.
