  • Chatteris railway station across centre of picture with the platforms hidden by the rear of the Station master’s house/station building on the left edge.

    The signal box is in front of main engineers factory building and the central top half of the building with two chimneys being the Vine pub in Honeysome Road. This road showing going up on the right

    After closure of the railway in 1967 the A141 Fenland Way by-pass was laid along the redundant line as far as north Wimblington.

    The position of the front haystacks so close to the railway being attributed, by some, as the cause of the start of the Great Fire of Chatteris in 1864.
