Lincolnshire Wolds Railway. Stock awaiting renovation.

I had the opportunity to go into the sidings at the rear of the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway, where stock awaiting renovation is kept, on a trip with the Grimsby Photographic Society.

Some original signage from the Great Northern Railway.

The front of a diesel shunter.

Diesel shunter cab controls.


This colourful loco has been here for quite a while.




Campion growing wild.

I didn't ask!



An old guard's brake van.





This had me thinking, it's an old saddle tank plus a cab loaded onto a flatbed wagon.

A few examples of how nature soon takes over.




Lovely old coach.









Back in the "Steaming Kettle" restaurant coach.

Lincoln Cathedral (Floodlit).

A few pictures of a floodlit  Lincoln Cathedral.


The archway leads to Castle Square.

The west face under repair.  This is a constant process to upkeep the Cathedral.

Biscathorpe.

Biscathorpe is another hidden gem in the Lincolnshire Wolds.  It's a shallow valley with a pure chalk stream running through it, the only buildings are a house, recently converted into a holiday cottage and a derelict church adjacent to it.
The chalk stream meanders across the road running through the valley and in two places creates fords which can be problematic for vehicles in times of prolonged rain.  Something I know to my cost!


Approaching one of the fords.


In times of flood, these fords can be a challenge.





The holiday cottage, my daughter's friends were staying here when we visited.

The church is very ornate but unfortunately hemmed in by trees 
and very definitely locked!



If I can find out who's looking after this church I hope to get permission to photograph inside.
