SK6995 : Misson Station

taken 7 years ago, near to Misson, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Misson Station
Misson Station
Station Road ends here and becomes Springs Road so it seems not unreasonable to assume that this is the site of Misson Station. However, all the literature I possess seems to indicate that Mission Station (which was only ever open to goods traffic) was about 3km to the east at Idle Stop. Was a station planned for this site but never opened ? The whole line had a chequered history. It ran from Bawtry to Haxey Junction and was opened in 1912 but the Misson to Haxey Junction section closed in 1914 so its life was short in the extreme. Misson to Bawtry remained open until December 1964.
