Shippea railway station photo-survey (5)
The level crossing at the east end of Shippea Hill station looking east in the down (Norwich-bound) direction. The crossing is controlled from the adjacent signalbox and the gates are moved by hand. In this photo, the signalman is closing the gates against road traffic in preparation for the passage of a train.

Very few trains stop at this isolated fenland station which is approximately five miles east of Ely North Junction on the route from Ely to Norwich.
