Romsey Signal Box in its new location
Romsey Signal Box was built in 1871 and was originally located on the otherside of the railway embankment (just visible on the left of the photo). Resignalling works in 1982 made the box redundant. When BR asked the nearby infants school for access permission to remove the box, the Headteacher had the idea of saving it for education purposes. A trust was formed and bought the box for 10. Moving it into the school grounds cost another 10,000! It is now a listed building and is looked after by The Friends of Romsey Signal Box and is open one Sunday every month.
