“NOTICE is hereby given, that application is intended to be made to Parliament in the next Session thereof, by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company (who are hereinafter called “the Company”) for leave to bring in a Bill for the following, or some of the following, among other purposes (that is to say) :—

To enable the Company to make and maintain the railways and the widenings (including in that expression the alteration and improvement of and the laying down of additional lines of rails) and works hereinafter described, with all needful stations, junctions, sidings, approaches, works and conveniences connected therewith (that is to say):—

Railway (No. 1), commencing in the parish of Garthorpe, in the Parts of Lindsey in the county of Lincoln, by a junction with the Axholme Joint Railway of the Company and the North Eastern Company at the point of termination of that railway and terminating in the parish of Winteringham in the said county of Lincoln (Parts of Lindsey) in the field numbered 15 on the 25-inch Ordnance Map (1887), Lincolnshire, sheet VI-1, at a point in the said field about 1 chains east of Booth Nooking-Lane and about 2 chains south of the northern boundary fence of the said field. The said railway will be situate in the following counties and parishes, or some or one of them (that is to say):—In the parish of Fockerby in the rural district of Goole, in the West Riding of the county of York, and in the parishes of Garthorpe, Alkborough, Whitton, in the rural district of Glanford Brigg and Winteringham, in the parts of Lindsey in the county of Lincoln.

Railway (No. 2) situate wholly in the said parish of Winteringham, commencing by a junction with the proposed Railway No. 1, at its termination as hereinbefore described, and terminating in the field numbered 20 on the 25-inch Ordnance Map (1887) Lincolnshire, Sheet VI-5, at a point in the said field about 6 chains north-west of the centre of Winteringham Haven and about 15 chains north of Marsh-lane.

Railway (No. 3), situate wholly in the said parish of Winteringham, commencing by a junction with the proposed Railway No. 1 at its termination as hereinbefore described, and terminating in the field numbered 38 on the 25-inch Ordnance Map (1887) Lincolnshire Sheet VI-5, at a point near the eastern boundary fence of the said field about 1 chain south of the junction of the northern and eastern boundary fences of the said field.

Railway (No. 4), situate wholly in the said parish of Winteringham, commencing by a junction with the proposed Railway No. 3 at its termination as hereinbefore described, and terminating in the field numbered 101 on the said last mentioned Ordnance Map by a junction with the deviated Railway No. 1 authorized by the North Lindsey Light Railways Order, 1900.

Notes from the editor:

Field 20 was the “Top Wharp” and would bring the proposed railway close to the side of the eventual railway dock (near the chutes).  It would follow a similar line to the eventual Whitton extension.

Field 38 is the one across the road and slightly south of Marsh Farm, and Field 101 is the one upon which the junction from Winteringham Station to the Haven was built. It would appear then that the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway were proposing the Railway from Garthorpe to include approximately the same line as that which eventually went to Whitton, but terminating at the Haven.  A junction close to Marsh Farm would see a line directly into Winteringham Station, crossing Waterside and Marsh Road fairly close to their junction with one another.
