Thurgarton sign

Thurgarton station lies on the line between Lincoln and Nottingham, and although I'd visited it before, that time I only caught it by running across a field and waving frantically. This time I started a walk at the station and had rather more time to look at the place!

Having arrived on platform 2, we look westwards along the line:

Across the level crossing we get a long look at platform 1 and the station building:

The front of the station building is splendid:
