Lowdham sign

Lowdham is one of the stations on the line between Lincoln and Nottingham which has a service for much of the day, so I found myself here a couple of times walking to or from nearby stations.

The Nottingham-bound platform 2, seen from platform 1 opposite:

The level crossing crosses the line to the west of the station, with the A6097 bridging over the line in the middle distance:

The station building is on platform 1, and is in splendid shape. Its side faces on to the road:

Hiding next to the station building is an old station sign:

Looking west at both platforms from platform 2:

Just east of the station building is a disused bay with a siding:

Looking east from the end of platform 1 we can see that the siding is quite thoroughly disconnected from the network:
