Deeping signal box restoration takes major step forward

A campaign to restore the historic Deeping St James signal box has taken a major move forward.

The 1876-built signal box was demolished in 2014 to make way for new electric crossing gates as part of a £280 million modernisation of the Great Northern and Great Eastern joint line between Peterborough and Doncaster.

Yesterday, the concrete footings were laid at a nearby site in the village, where campaigning residents plan to erect an information and heritage centre using the remains of the former signal box.
