Fenny Compton Signal Box
Fenny Compton Signal Box
This box used to control the connections between the ex-GWR Birmingham - London main line and the Stratford-upon-Avon and Midland Junction Railway which ran side by side for a short distance south of here. The box in the picture dates from the upgrading of the S&MJ in 1965 to carry more freight between South Wales and the South Midlands whilst avoiding the Midland conurbations. After the closure of the S&MJ part of the line as far as SP3752 : Temple Herdewyke survived with the junction still controlled from this signal box. On the 4th May 2004 this mechanical signal box was closed as part of the Cherwell Valley resignalling project LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link with the new SP4252 : Fenny Compton signalling installation controlling the layout operated from SP3165 : Leamington Spa signal box.
