The sunrise over, somewhere, near Melton:

Don't ask me where it was, because, I was properly lost, but, I found this gem:

I love derelict places, to find an abandoned railway station complete with platforms and benches :) , If it wasn't for the fact I didn't know whos land I was on, I'd have stayed a while ;)

I asked that Gaz as I used to live near Melton in the East Riding and there was a small station called Melton Halt which we used to use occasionally.

This looks like the place:

Lowesby station. Just outside Tilton.

Lowersby station opened on the 15 May 1882, the first station to be opened on the GNR spur to Leicester. The first passenger service from Peterborough to Leicester terminated at Lowersby from the 1 January 1883 until the line into Leicester was completed. When opened the station was called Loseby but was changed in December 1916 to Lowesby. The station closed on the 7 December 1953 but the workmans special lasted until 29 April 1957 apart from a short break in December 1956. The station site is now part of a farm.

Considering that's been closed for 57 years, it's remarkable it seems to have survived in relatively good condition. Might have to have a ride out that way sometime... ;)
