South Willingham, Station Rd, Railway Gate
This dilapidated gate led onto the access lane up to Hainton and Willingham Station.
This was a junction on the Louth to Bardney railway line, originally built by the Louth & Lincoln Railway Company. Construction began at Louth in July 1872, but it took almost 4 years to complete the route.
The line closed to passengers in 1951 and to freight in 1958. The station building still exists but is now a private house.
