Swinderby sign

Swinderby was at the end of a short walk from nearby Collingham station on a beautifully sunny day. Actually, the walk was slightly longer than I anticipated as Swinderby station is a little way out of Swinderby itself and sits isolated amidst fields:

Approaching the station along the road:

Crossing the level crossing we get a good overview of the site from the north. On the right is the old station house and on the left is the signalbox:
