taken 7 years ago, near to Stamford, Lincolnshire, England

Stamford East Station once
Stamford East Station once
Stamford's other station, built by the Midland Railway, survives, served hourly by Birmingham-Stansted trains, but Stamford East, terminus of the Great Northern Railway branch line from Essendine, closed in 1959. The fine Victorian-Elizabethan station house remains, but the platforms and goods yard are now occupied by a rather crass collection of yellow-brick flats, which include the Grade II listed goods warehouse (behind the camera). On the left of the picture, on the corner of Station Road and Water Street, is the former Great Northern Hotel.
