  • If you commute and wait on the platfrom, you'll spot this signal box. But its worth making a visit at the next open day. Quite interesting and a nice step into the past.  more »

  • They regularly have an open weekend to come down and see how train signals used to work. Great piece of local history
  • We have been here a few times for their open days which have been a big hit with both of my young children. It is run by volunteers who love what they do and maintain the place to a high standard. It's worth a visit.
  • Had a wonderful few hours with my 3 year old son. Fantastic volunteers who ate friendly and knowledgeable. Lovely simple afternoon out
  • Super piece of railway heritage. Brought the cubs here for an evening and the team laid on a fantastic evening of demos and interactive signalling. The cubs can't wait to return. The place is kept in fantastic condition and is a real credit to the dedicated volunteers that keep it running.
  • Very knowledgeable, friendly volunteers who guide you round in your group and share their vast knowledge with you. Who knew how much work running a signal box was!
