Edenham Primary School is Tudor in style, and was built in 1873 of limestone ashlar with a Collyweston slate roof. A single external chimney stack with a tall ashlar shaft is to the rear.

The building is single storey, with a chamfered plinth with pierced stone vents.

The former Little Bytham to Edenham railway was laid down at his own personal expense by Lord Willoughby to bring passengers and goods - especially coal - to the centre of his estate at Grimsthorpe and to nearby Bourne.

It opened in 1856 and ran for a relatively short time.

Three stone buildings of the terminus survive at Edenham: the station building, engine shed and tiny weighhouse (shown here), all now subsumed within an extensive farmstead.
