The Lincoln to Boston line was opened in 1848 as part of the Great Northern Railway’s Lincolnshire Loop Line.

Southrey station closed with the line in 1970 but goods trains to and from Horncastle continued to pass through until 1971.

This was one of the stations alongside the River Witham with a ferry service linking the isolated farms on Dunston Fen on the west bank with the station.

Now part of the long distance cycling and walking trail, the ‘Water Rail Way’, the platforms, concrete name boards and station master's house still survive.

This unusual little wooden church was built in the 1890s by the local joiner.

Today, the wood is protected externally by plastic cladding.
