Full Steam Ahead

The restoration of Market Rasen Old Railway Station has been given the green light thanks to National Lottery players!

Following a successful second round application by the specially formed Market Rasen Station Community Project Community Interest Company, a grant of £463,900 has been awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to transform the derelict Grade II listed railway station building.

Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, this grant will now enable works to begin to restore the building dating back to 1848, when it was opened as part of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway.
