My thanks to John Webb for the info that the signal box, very much characteristic of the North Eastern Railway style, was opened circa 1915 and closed in 1993. A short history and a photograph of it before closure, which helps to explain the narrow base and the broad top, can be found at LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .
