BOURNE AND SLEAFORD RAILWAY

DESCRIPTION + /

The Bourne and Sleaford Railway was born out of a proposal by the GER to open a line from Cambridge to York, via Essendine, Bourne, Sleaford and Lincoln, but Parliament refused to authorise it. The GNR had already proposed the Bourne and Sleaford section, and built it, opening in 1872. By purchasing the Essendine and Bourne Line, it gave Sleaford improved access to London. The line closed to passengers in 1930.
