New Mobile Site

Location notes
These footpath locations have been temporarily closed as of 2011 and will likely remain closed indefinitely.

Tallington village lies between Stamford and Market Deeping, just to the north west of Peterborough.
Railway type and traffic
Regular East Coast and Hull trains pass the location, as do some freight workings.
Environment
These crossings are in the fields, which are usually home to sheep.
Road directions
From Stamford on the A1 head east on the A16 which is signposted to Spalding. This road takes you straight to Tallington. As you near the end of this village, look out for 'Mill Lane' on your right, and take this turn. You should notice a hall and a park on the left just a few yards down this lane, and ample space to park your motor. You should also see the footpath which is well signposted.
To get to the second crossing, continue down Mill Lane which will bend sharply to the left. It will then bend sharply to the right, and it is at this point where you will need to park on the wide grass verge. Follow the public footpath to the railway.

Photographic notes
These footpath locations have been temporarily closed as of 2011 and will likely remain closed indefinitely.

Shots can be taken from both sides of the line, and also in both directions, so a variety of shots can be had throughout the day, although some shots are obviously better than others as can be seen in the views below.
Shots can also be had from the footbridge near the main road crossing, but the bridge design favours south facing shots and the catenary masts can be troublesome here.
