Nantwich signal box

Network Rail is set to demolish Nantwich’s aging railway signal box if plans get given the go ahead.

They have submitted plans to Cheshire East Council to knock down the signal box at the level crossing on Wellington Road.

Work would include disconnection and isolation for gas, water, sewage and electricity, services, and removal of asbestos which was found in the fabric of the building after a survey.

The work, to be done after April 16 if permission is granted, would mean the road and level crossing being closed for a period of time.

Once demolished, they plan to erect a palisade fence to protect the railway from trespass.


  1. Muller homes probably think they can buy it and fit a few houses on it.

  2. I thought for some reason it was a listed building, but obviously not.

    Its a real pity it cant stay as its a bit of a Nantwich landmark in My eyes.
