Watlington sign, signal box, and
level crossing

Watlington is on the Fen Line between Cambridge and King's Lynn. It was opened in 1848 with the rest of the line to King's Lynn. I visited it on a showery April evening in 2005.

The station was originally known as Magdalen Road, and the signal box still is:
