About Tattershall Station
Tattershall station had two brick faced platforms. The station master's house which incorporated the booking office was Italianate in style with a three storey brick tower, similar to some other stations on the loop line. There were timber waiting shelters on both platforms. A wide forecourt in front of the building led into the goods yard.
A signal box was sited on the down side of the line opposite the goods yard which comprised two long sidings and a shorter siding that passed through a large brick good shed. The yard had a 1.5ton crane and handed a wide variety of freight traffic including livestock, sugar beet, potatoes, corn and wool.
The station was closed to both passengers and goods on 17th June 1953. During the 1970s and 1980s the Tattershall Air Museum was located in the goods yard. The station is now in private occupation but also houses the Tattershall Station Gallery in the booking office selling paintings and pottery with public access along part of the up platform.
