Snippet Detail

Plate 47 is a useful (but undated) black & white photograph showing Blea Moor Signal Box in its pre 1941 position (beside the 'down' line), a water crane (Location ID 248540), the semi-detached workers' houses (Location ID 248580) and their outhouses and the 'up' side water tower / tank-house (Location ID 248530). The accompanying text refers to ["Way and Works Committee Minutes No. 12660, 4/11/1892"] and quotes a ["renewal cost of £200"] for this signal box. The text also states that this signal box ["remained in use until 1941"], that it had to be removed to allow the extension of Blea Moor Sidings, and that ["a new LMS signal box was provided at that time"] (see Location ID 248480).
