Louth station area in the 1970s
The passenger services were withdrawn from
the East Lincolnshire line in 1970 and the line south of Louth was
A single line was retained from Grimsby to Louth for another 10 years
largely to service the ABM maltkin.
The station and other railway buildings on site began to deteriorate.
Luckily Louth station building survives today as smart housing.
However the rest of the buildings, with the exception of Louth North
signalbox, have all gone. The malt kiln site is now an Aldi supermarket.
