About Metheringham Station

The station was opened to passengers on 1 July 1882 named Blankney & Metheringham. It later closed to passengers on 11 September 1961 and later reopened on 6 October 1975 named Metheringham.

Metheringham Railway Station is now owned by Network Rail and managed by East Midlands Railways who provide all rail services in this area.

The station is unstaffed and offers limited facilities other than two shelters, bicycle storage, timetables and modern 'Help Points'.

The full range of tickets for travel are purchased from the guard on the train at no extra cost, there are no retail facilities at this station.

The signal box at the south of the station is called 'Blankney' and used to operate the level crossing on the B1189 road, before it was modernised with automatic barriers and controlled from the Lincoln Operating Centre. The signal box is one of only five type 4 GNR boxes to survive (2012), and as such has been deemed a Grade II listed building.
