The GNR East Lincolnshire line from Peterborough to Grimsby via Spalding and Boston provided a good passenger service for the eastern part of Lincolnshire to and from London until it closed post-Beeching in 1970.

As with other rural stations on the route, Aby had a short siding with a goods shed designed to provide shelter for loaded railway wagons.

This substantial red brick building now provides good storage for the local landowner.

This building, originally a home of the Hussey family, contains Elizabethan brickwork and timber of a similar age.

The house once had a thatched roof but this was tiled soon after the East Lincolnshire Railway was built nearby.

19th and 20th century occupants include J F Rawnsley and the Palethorpe family.
