It is remarkable that the church hall - an untidy wooden building - was sited so close to the church.

"The village name derives from the bridge crossing the South Forty-Foot Drain. Originally it was a wooden structure, and a new wooden bridge was erected about 1850, but was replaced again by a brick structure in 1888 by the County Justices for the Parts of Holland from designs of Mr John Kingston, County Surveyor"

Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states "There is a Primitive Methodist chapel at Hubbert's Bridge, built in 1871, and a Wesleyan chapel in Frampton Village"

"A List And Brief Details Of Chapels In The Boston Circuit Past And Present” prepared by Colin Shepherdson October 1996 (Revised August 1998) states :-

"The foundation stone for the Station Road chapel was laid on the 22.5.1871 and the foundation stone for an extension on the 19.8.1879.

The chapel interior was reversed, the front entrance was closed, and a new porch, kitchen and toilets were added and the remodelled building reopened on the 20.5.1978.

The last service was held on the 22.6.1997, when the membership stood at 10, and the chapel put up for sale, later the same year.

It was sold in June 1998 for conversion into a dwelling"

"It is located on the Sleaford to Boston section of the Nottingham to Skegness line. Opened along with the line by the Boston, Sleaford and Midland Counties Railway in 1859.

The eastbound platform is longer than the westbound platform: it can accommodate a three-car train, whereas the westbound platform can only accommodate a two-car train"

White's Directory of Lincolnshire 1872 has an entry "Read Thomas, station master, Hubbert's Bridge".

"A signal box at the West end of the station supervises a level crossing and the western end of the single track section from Boston.

However, the station itself is unstaffed and offers limited facilities other than two shelters, bicycle storage, timetables and modern 'Help Points'".

Did the pub change its name as White's Directory 1872 only lists the Station Inn in Hubberts Bridge "Hammond William Greeson, victualler, Station Inn,Hubbert's Bdg"?
