Old Photos of Witham

Station and maltings from east

Taken: 1911, Ref: M2784

The station with maltings (Harrison Gray) on the left. Cattle trucks in front of it (with ventilators). Just past the maltings, is the old wooden goods shed, which was nearly circular. Probably built not long after the original station (which was in 1843). Freight would go there to be unloaded. 

On the right, the Junction signal box. To the right of that, are probably part of Cullen’s seed trial grounds. Information from John Newman. See also M580 and M581, M2776-M2783, and M2785-M2788.
