We have compiled a section using old photos of Stallingborough. If anyone out there has anything to add to this page or has relatives in some of the pictures we would love to hear from you.

A pre-war view of Stallingborough station, (left) situated on the GCR line between Grimsby and Barnetby, with a small herd of cows lazily heading westward.  Station buildings are in the GCR style of the area. Booking office and station house are on the westbound platform (right), waiting room & shelter on eastbound side. (Early 1900s)

Another turn of the century picture,(below) possibly showing a special outing, as everyone appears to be in their Sunday best clothes.

A late view of station and signalbox. (right)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Station staff at Stallingborough. (below) Probably pre 1922 as there are a number of Great Central Railway (GCR) cap badges in evidence.

 

A 1970`s picture (left) of the station taken from the westbound platform. Signals are now upper quadrant standard BR types.

Station Road (below/left) looking westwards showing Stallingborough station building on Grimsby side  of crossing - signalbox to right. (Pre-war)

  

 

A "slushy" winters day (1960`s) shot of a Derby DMU crossing Station Road and those of you with a good eye for cars, you will notice a Ford Anglia waiting at the gates.
