Rye Signalbox

Rye signal box opened in 1894. Whereas many of the early signal boxes on the South Eastern Railway had been erected and fitted out by the company themselves, the intensive signalling of the late 1880's and 1890's necessitated the extensive use of contractor's work.
Much of this work was carried out by Saxby & Farmer, and this example depicts one of two designs introduced in 1884.
The box is now disused.
Grade II listed.


Signalboxes are used in Britain to control the safe movement of trains across the railway network. Most are located either just outside stations or at junctions.
