Welland Bridge signal box was in the town of Spalding next to the Welland river. There was a bridge across the river with a set of level crossing gates on each side of the river Welland. Be for the Spalding bypass road was built around the town, most of this road traffic used both sides of the river.
 
Just up the road was another set two sets of gates each side of the river Welland when the M&GNJR was open.
