Ascott-under-Wychwood Signal Box 17 September 1983

The 1883 built Ascott-under-Wychwood Signal Box stands next to the station and level crossing on the edge of the village and used to mark the start of a 14 mile single track section of the Cotswold Line to Wolvercote Junction. The line was redoubled as far as Charlbury in 2011. With a storm approaching, the box is pictured in the late evening on 17 September 1983. As the box faces north it is only possible to get a good shot either very early or late in the day.
