Opened in 1848, Louth station was on the East Lincolnshire Railway, opened in 1848.
The Tudor Gothic style with a large porte-cochère, (covered carriage entrance), over the main doorway was designed to give a sense of occasion to travelling by train. Furthermore, it was the entrance for all, not just the well to do as would be the case in the country house which its design resembled.
Passenger trains ceased in 1970 but goods trains to the malthouse alongside the station ran for another ten years.
This building has since been converted into apartments.
