Barnetby & Knabbs Bridge
A Cleethorpes bound FTPE service at New
Barnetby level crossing on 24th April 2004.
New Barnetby is on a minor road and had,
on 30th December 2006, a level crossing which required the road user to
ring a bell for the
crossing keeper to leaves his accomodation on right to open the
gates. The footbridge provides for good photographs!
A picture taken on 16th January 2016
shows how the crossing has been updated in the resignalling of the line
carried out over Christmas
2015. It is now necessary for the road user to press the button on post
near telephone and await the barriers lifting if line is clear.
