Askern Doncaster South Yorkshire 1976

Askern L&YR signal box on the line from Doncaster to Knottingley was still in good shape controlling the level crossing on Station Road in 1976. It has since been demolished.

 

The station, which closed as early as 1948, and line were opened in 1847 and became part of the LMS in 1923. Interestingly following nationalisation it was transfered to the Eastern Region.
