Signal boxes between Peterborough and Lincoln
This signal box was on the railway line from Peterborough
to Spalding Sleaford
on the Great Nothern loop as it is called today. Much work has gone into upgrading this railway line. This has meant that nearly all the old signal boxes and signals and hand worked crossing gates have all gone. These have been replaced by a new signal center at Lincoln, which is to be replaced, when the York signal Center goes on line.
The next signal box is on the line to Lincoln in Sleaford is Sleaford West
