    Gedney railway station is in Lincolnshire, in the district of South Holland close to Holbeach. It was a station on the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway network. It opened on 1 July 1862 and was on the line that connected the East Coast Ports and Holiday Destinations with the Industrial midlands. The station is apparently one of the older ones and was built around 1866. The station closed on 2th March 1959. Below is a picture from 1973. Even though it had been closed for 14 years it can seen to still be in good shape. The now demolished goods shed can seen to be still standing behind the station to the right:

    This was a nice relaxed explore on a gloriously sunny day. Easy access but easy on those stairs and upper floors! Wanted to get a front shot of the station's name sign which still clearly bears its name but it was covered by thick brambles - hence I had to settle for a back shot:

    So here it is:

    The platforms are still in good nick:

    …and it is still unmistakable as a former station:

    Albeit with nature trying to claim it back:

    Inside it's in a sorry state:

    The roof to the side buildings is coming down:

    There's still a couple of the original fireplaces downstairs:

    This one has a tree for company:

    Up the stairs we go:

    The fireplace fairies have been at work here:

    …and in this room too:
