This fine brick warehouse is on the site of the former Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway line and part of the station complex at Bourne.

The M&GNJR line between Saxby (Leicestershire) in the west and Bourne was opened in 1893 to link up with the company's earlier cross-country line to Sutton Bridge and Kings Lynn.

The Great Northern Railway also ran a north-south line (Sleaford to Stamford) through the town.

Red Hall, of c1600, was used as a passenger station and station master's house from the arrival of the railway in Bourne in 1861 until it closed in 1959 (although a goods branch remained until 1965).

From the grounds a glimpse can be had of the goods warehouse.

This view of Bourne Abbey (the church of St Peter and St Paul) is from the south.

South Street, A15 trunk road, became much busier than suggested by this scene.

"Bourne Abbey and the Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul is a scheduled Grade I church in Bourne, Lincolnshire, England.

The building remains in parochial use, despite the 16th-century Dissolution, as the nave was used by the parish, probably from the time of the foundation of the abbey in 1138"
