This view of the station is thopught to have been taken shortly after the opening of the line to Winteringham in the summer of 1907.  We do not know the purpose of the huts shown in this picture and lower down the page, though it seems the passengers walked to the station between them and the fence guarding the line on the right.  There was only one passenger platform, with the line nearer the camera being the ‘runaround loop, for the engine to be uncoupled at the far end, and then brought to this end to pull the train back to Scunthorpe.  The mile sign post is on the platform, which has a pristine-looking white fence.  The chimney behind the station is of the old steam-driven flour mill.

Note that the fence has now been painted a different colour.  One of the signals protects the junction from the Whitton and Winteringham Haven branch, whilst the other is for the station spur.  There are two members of the station staff posing for the camera.

Quite why the station is flying the Union Jack is not clear, but with the pristine state of the station, the white-painted fence, and the fresh -looking stones on the path, perhaps this was the station preparing for its first train?  The station clock above appears to show a time of 4:25.  If anyone knows the story behind these photos we’d be pleased to know!

Another, probably early, view of the station, with what looks like work still being carried out as evidence by the heap of stones in the foreground.  Behind the Station can be seen the chimney of the steam-driven flour mill again, and a good view of the warehouse which was in use right into the 1960s.

Low Burgage, obviously before the road was surfaced in a fashion that we would recognise.  This beautiful post card shows the entrance to the station (small passenger gate nearer the camera, large good entrance further away.  The buildings include the weighbridge office, and behind that the stationmaster’s house.  Havelock Place is immediately behind the Stationmaster’s House.
