Barriers at Helpston Crossing
Barriers at Helpston Crossing
Helpston Crossing spans the Peterborough to Leicester line (the tracks nearest to the camera) and the East Coast Main Line (which passes behind the signalbox on this image). There were originally two separate crossings operated by the Midland Railway and the Great Northern Railway at this site. The railway station at Helpston was opened by the Midland Railway in October 1846 and was closed by British Rail in June 1966.
The two separate level crossings were merged into one and converted from gates to barriers during the 1970s. As of July 2014, Network Rail had submitted a proposal to close Helpston Crossing and replace it with a road bridge.
