"High Street Signal Box was built by the Great Northern Railway in 1874.
It is an early surviving example of a GNR box, the oldest being Barnby Moor & Sutton of 1872.
GNR signal boxes were the least standardised of any of the major railway companies because they were often contracted out to local builders.
While the design was broadly set in 1871 - including gabled roofs with elaborate bargeboards and finials - there were many variations in detail and almost every box built in the 1870s was slightly different.
High Street combines the typical gabled roof and finials with unusual fleur-de-lys ridge cresting.
As well as controlling railway signalling, the box controls the level crossing barriers and traffic signals.
In 1925, when the crossing gates were electrified, an extension was built to the west to meet these operational need"
