Burgh le Marsh Railway Station History

Railway station 2The station of Burgh-le-Marsh, despite its title, was two miles away from the town! Prior to the opening of the Skegness branch, a horse-drawn bus would meet trains on the East Lincolnshire Railway.

A well kept station which once had a model of the Burgh windmill on display on the platform: More recently its goods shed served as a railway museum which, sadly, closed several years ago.
