Transport

   The Railway
Before the arrival of the railway supplies were delivered to the village by horse−drawn cart. If space was available villagers could ride to Louth on the carriers carts but the seats would have to be booked well in advance. Each carrier used a public house yard as his Louth base and on market days the town was full of carts from the surrounding villages. Furniture removal was also an important part of the carriers business.
In 1881 there were four carriers in the village − Reuben Chambers, Charlie Preston, William Farmery and John Bell but as rail traffic increased much of their trade disappeared. Charles Sharp´s Wednesday service to the King´s Head hotel started in 1904 but ceased the following year. The last carrier to operate from the village to Louth was Charles Bosnell. His Wednesday and Saturday services, which also terminated at the King´s Head hotel, started in the early 1900´s and finished when he retired in 1921. Mr Bosnell was born about 1850 and did not attend school as his parents could not afford the 1 penny a week which lessons cost at that time. He had started work on the land at the age of eight and received three pence per day. Two years later he was promoted to the swing plough and his wage increased to six pence (2½ new pence). Before moving to Donington on Bain he had worked for fourteen years for Thomas Gaunt of Thimbleby as garthman and wagonner.
From 1924 to 1926 Mr W. Graves ran a small motor lorry from Donington on Bain, via Stenigot and Goulceby, to Horncastle market arriving at the Red Lion hotel at 11 a.m. and departing at 3 p.m. Mr Graves also hired out a motor car. Before moving to the village he was a foreman engineer for Ruston and Hornsby of Lincoln.
By 1855 the County of Lincolnshire was fairly well served by railways. The Great Northern Railway and Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway covered much of the County but both companies stayed clear of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The cost of construction through this area, some of which rose to a height of over 500 feet, was regarded by 19th century railway builders as prohibitive.
The possibility of building a railway from the Midlands to the Lincolnshire Coast was first discussed in the early 1860´s. Potential investors were led to believe that the new rail link would facilitate the exploitation of local ironstone deposits and that Derbyshire coal could be imported to smelt ore. Other goods could also be transported from the Midlands to a new port to be built at Sandilands, near Sutton on Sea.
In 1865 a route was planned leaving the East Lincolnshire branch of the Great Northern Railway by a junction near to Monks Dyke crossing at Louth and terminating at a junction near to Five Mile House at Washingborough. The original plan was for the line to run north of Hallington crossing the Bluestone Heath road about a mile from its junction with the main Louth to Lincoln road. The line would then proceed north of Donington on Bain, north of South Willingham, south of East Barkwith and Wragby to Washingborough. Tunnelling would be avoided by using this route but steep gradients, deep cuttings and high embankments would be necessary. Permission to construct the line was obtained in 1866 and on August 6th of that year the Louth and Lincoln Railway Company was incorporated.
The Original estimates for this difficult project had proved insufficient but eventually additional capital was raised and in 1872 a revised route was proposed which included two tunnels, one of 971 yards in length between Withcall and Donington on Bain and the other 557 yards in length between Donington on Bain and South Willingham. Problems with land purchase at Washingborough meant that beyond South Willingham the line would turn south to join the Great Northern loop at Bardney.
This was a significant change of plan. The original intention was to build a trunk line to the Midlands but now investors realised that they could hope for little more than a minor branch line.
Work began at both ends of the line in 1872 and by August of the following year the section between Bardney and South Willingham was complete. The Withcall tunnel produced many problems during its construction. In October 1874 a build−up of water resulted in a flood which almost washed construction workers away and in November the hands of the bricklayers were so badly burned with the wet lime that they refused to work. In December 1874 an accident involving a runaway wagon resulted in the death of construction worker Cornelius Janaway. Lack of co−operation between the surveyors and construction team led to the tunnel being built without safety recesses for maintenance workers and there was no ventilation.
The short, steep climb from Withcall, through the tunnel to Donington on Bain was hard work for engine crews, particularly during the winter months when the lines were wet and greasy. There were many times when the crew were forced to lay on the cab floor with a wet cloth over their faces to avoid the choking fumes.
On 27th September 1875 the section from Bardney to Donington on Bain was opened to goods traffic and on 1st December 1876 the complete line was opened to passenger traffic. South Willingham station was renamed ‘South Willingham and Hainton‘ and Donnington lost one ‘n’ and became Donington.
Sixteen cottages were built in the village to house some of the railway employees − a terrace of four cottages of wooden construction was built behind the Railway Inn (on the west side of station road) and a semi−detached pair was built on Station Road, beside the main gates. A further five blocks of semi−detached cottages were built at the lower end of the Woodyard, off Chapel lane (these later became No´s 10 to 19 Enfield Road).
There was only one line through the station and one platform (on the north side) in regular use. At the western end of the station was a siding loop on the north side of the line with connections out of and into the main line. The signal box was situated on the south side of the line opposite to the centre of the siding loop. Points on the main line led into and out of the loop which had safety catch points at each end. At the western end the points communicated with a long shunting neck and at the eastern, or station end terminated in a short siding with a low dead−end made from timbers and ballast which acted as a revetment to the end of the passenger platform. There was a second platform on the south side of the main line, opposite the loop line between the signal box and the station, but this was not often used. The line was worked on the train staff and ticket system and Donington on Bain was a staff station. There was a gradient of 1 in 150 rising from the direction of Wragby towards Louth up to the signal box, and of 1 in 400 through the station.
Charles Freeborough, a railway clerk at Donington on Bain, bought the first ticket at the village station and his wife Mary was with the first group of passengers to travel to Louth. Many people gathered at the railway station on the opening day but the celebrations were marred when a tragic accident happened which resulted in one of the villagers, Fred Flinton, being killed.
Originally the service consisted of five passenger trains each way on weekdays but by January 1877 that number was reduced to four. Thirteen railway employees lived in the village in 1881. There were two clerks, one of whom was Charles Freeborough who, some 12 years later would become station master, two porters, one signalman and eight platelayers.
In the mid−1880´s there were six trains a day from Bardney. Goods trains left at 7.40 am (arriving at Donington on Bain at 9.45 am) and 11.40 am (goods and coal) (arriving at Donington on Bain at 12.45 pm). Four passenger trains left Bardney at 9.10 am (arriving at 9.40 am), 11.15 am (arriving at 11.45 pm), 4.20 pm (arriving at 4.50 pm) and 7.03 pm (arriving at 7.33pm). Trains from Louth included a cattle train at 10.10 am (arriving at 10.40 am on Tuesdays only) and goods at 12.00 noon (except Tuesday) arriving at Donington on Bain at 1.00 pm. A goods and coal train left Louth at 4.20 pm arriving at 5.30 pm (except Saturday). Passenger trains left Louth at 8.05 am (arriving at 8.25 am), 10.24 am (arriving at 10.44 am), 2.56 pm (arriving at 3.16 pm) and 5.35 pm (arriving at 5.55 pm). There was no Sunday service.
On Monday 20th August 1894 a collision occurred at Donington on Bain station resulting in injuries to at least six passengers. In the late 1800´s local excursion trains often used the Bardney to Louth line and on this occasion engine No 308, which had six coupled wheels and a six−wheeled tender, was pulling 12 coaches, including brakes on excursion No 77 from Langrick to Cleethorpes. The driver was Thomas Williamson, fireman John Gostelow, passenger guard William Henry Clarke and porter−guard J. Bolton. The train picked up passengers at Wragby and East Barkwith but ran through South Willingham, there being no passengers at that station. It arrived at Donington on Bain at 8.26 a.m. (being due at 8.22 a.m.) and was directed into a siding for the up train to pass. When the up train (8.25 a.m. to Bardney) had left, the excursion train moved forward intending to exit the siding and stop at the station platform to pick up passengers but the points were set for the dead−end at the western end of the platform. The buffer−stop, or dead−end, was formed of turned−up rails backed by a timber revetment which supported the end of the platform. The train hit the dead−end and the engine and tender mounted the station platform, which was behind the stop block, until it came to a halt. The engine had its brake−hangers, brackets, brake rods and life guards bent and broken and the front vacuum pipe was damaged beyond repair. Damage to the train was slight, consisting of a buffer−casting broken, a second chipped and the body of a carriage slightly shifted. The buffer−stop was completely demolished as the engine and tender cut their way through it and landed on the platform and the permanent way had ten chairs broken.
By the early 1900´s the railway had become an established part of village life. Wednesdays and Saturdays were the busiest days for passengers with most of them travelling to Louth Market. Cattle, sheep and other livestock as well as guano (fertiliser) for speading on the land, animal feed and coal made up the bulk of goods traffic.
During the First World War many acres of pine trees around Withcall and Stenigot were felled for use as trench supports on the battlefields of Europe and pit props at home and this timber was loaded at Withcall and Donington on Bain stations.
In 1923, following a merger, the Great Northern Railway became the London and North Eastern Railway. By this time Charles Freeborough had retired and the new stationmaster was John Margisson. Other staff at the station included porter Harry Bosnell and clerk Arthur Green.
In 1927 Bardney Sugar Beet Factory opened and local farmers who were contracted to grow the new crop were able to load it at the local station. This provided a welcome seasonal boost for goods traffic along the line.
Mr J.C. Bullock was signalman at the station in the late 1930´s. He had started working for the LNER as a telegraph lad at Peterborough and after a short spell at Finsbury Park in London returned to his home town of Grantham to work the south box. In a letter to a local newspaper some years ago he recalled how he was later transferred to Donington on Bain for a wage of 50 shillings (£ 2.50) per week with only eight trains a day. To relieve the boredom they had a gun in the signal box and shot rabbits when not on duty. As with most single line track, control of the trains was by a staff and ticket and as the train approached the signal box the signalman passed the staff to the fireman. The staff was the passport to Louth or Bardney. If a goods train was in the sidings waiting, the passenger train carried a sacred ticket, but the signalman had to show the driver the staff. Mr Bullock recalled how, one day, there were cows on the line and he forgot to make out a ticket but gave the staff to the passenger train. The goods train then could not go until stationmaster Margisson had collected the staff from Louth, a return journey of some 15 miles.
The railway got a new lease of life during the Second World War. Front line airfields had been constructed at Kelstern and Ludford Magna and in January 1943, RAF Maintenance Unit No 233, a subsidiary unit of Ludford Magna, was formed at Market Stainton to organise the supply and storage of armaments. Bombs delivered by rail to Withcall, Donington, South Willingham and Wragby stations were stored on the wide roadside verges of the High Street. Hallington station was used as an empties dump and from there the assembled empty crates and cases were returned to the munitions factories. The first of the blockbuster concrete−piercing bombs was unloaded at Donington on Bain station and was eventually delivered to Ludford Magna. Trains consisting of between 30 and 50 wagons loaded with incendiary bombs were often seen passing through the station.
During the war years an alternative economy developed around the railway. Coal was a valuable commodity and was often exchanged for local produce. In the late 1940´s the railway was still helping villagers to supplement their incomes. Game such as pheasant, partridge, rabbits and hares were trapped or snared along the lineside, particularly the section between the station and Benniworth Haven. In the school holidays families would take the morning train to Hallington and spend the day picking brambles at Raithby brackens. These were often sold to the jam factory at Louth.
After the war the railway quickly went into decline. Passengers were few and often goods trains carried only coal. In October 1946 an incident happened which resulted in three railway crew members each receiving the LNER Railway Medal in recognition of their courage. The driver of the morning freight from Bardney to Louth was Jack Ingoldmells, his fireman was Geoff Jackson and guard Arthur Dodman, all from Louth. The locomotive was working hard on the climb from South Willingham to Benniworth Haven when hot embers from the chimney ignited straw packed round propane cylinders in a wagon in the middle of the train. The fire was not seen until the train was approaching Donington on Bain station and by that time it was burning fiercely. Fireman Jackson and guard Dodman isolated the burning wagon but received serious burns from the intense heat. Minutes later some of the propane cylinders exploded and Geoff Jackson received further injuries from the hot metal. Arthur Dodman ran back down the line to warn the Blakey family at Lineside farm of the risk of more explosions. By this time the burning wagon had run back into the rear part of the train and several coal wagons were on fire.
The Gray brothers were soon on the scene with the village fire pump and an ambulance from RAF Ludford Magna attended to give first aid to the injured railwaymen. The mid−day Louth to Bardney passenger train was terminated at Donington and immediately returned to Louth with the injured crew. Jack Ingoldmells, Geoff Jackson and Arthur Dodman were presented with their medals in London by the chairman of the LNER.
Two world wars and numerous company mergers had left the railways increasingly dependent on state finance and on 1st January 1947 the state took control of Britain´s railways and the small staff at Donington on Bain station became employees of British Railways.
The severe winter of 1947 caused considerable disruption of both road and rail transport in the area and it was not possible to get in or out of the village for many days. From 22nd January to 17th March 1947, snow fell every day somewhere in the UK and the temperature seldom rose more than a degree or so above freezing.
The railway company were the first to clear a way from Louth to the village using two engines pushing a large wooden snow plough. The winter of 1947 proved to be the worst the village had experienced since 1814 and in March, when the big freeze finally ended, low lying areas of the village were flooded.
In March 1951 a letter was received by Louth Rural District Council from British Railways announcing its plans to close the line. Despite many protestations from village councillor Charles Benton it was decided that the last passenger train on the line would leave Louth at 3.57 pm on Saturday, 3rd November 1951. About 50 passengers were on board when the train left Louth in heavy rain for the final journey. The driver was Bill Cartwright from Louth who had been associated with locomotive No 67379 for more than 30 years. Fred Hardy was the fireman and Cyril Thompson the guard. At Wragby, on the outward journey, driver Cartwright was presented with a wreath of chrysanthemums by station master Savony and this was placed on the front of the engine. The wreath bore the inscription "Louth Bardney Passenger Service − In Memoriam − Born 1876 Died 1951". At Bardney the last ticket for the return journey was issued to acting station master Thacker. At Donington on Bain station fog detonators were placed on the line to announce the arrival of the last passenger train and on the platform a small group of villagers had gathered in the rain to witness the event. As the train pulled out of the station a group of railway enthusiasts in the second coach sang "Auld Lang Syne". The 7.21 from Bardney arrived at Louth dead on time.
Goods traffic continued for a time but on 17th September 1956 the line from Louth to Donington on Bain closed. On 1st February 1960, 86 years after it had opened, the final section from Donington to Bardney closed. By October 1961 most of the track had been removed.
   Road Transport
Wright´s Bus Service was founded in 1926 at Louth by Edward Kemp and Fred Wright. By 1930 the company had become well established and Donington on Bain was included in the many routes covered by this company. There were frequent services between Louth and Lincoln and, as in earlier times the railway had taken away much of the carriers trade, now, in turn, the buses were taking away the business of the railway as villagers turned once again to road transport. This new service was much more convenient for many villagers as they were able to catch the bus in the village instead of having to walk almost a mile to the railway station. In those days the bus companies also provided a personal service and many passengers regarded the drivers and conductors as friends. A comprehensive parcels and newspaper delivery service was also provided and quite often bicycles, sacks of produce and boxes containing chickens and rabbits for the market were to be found between the seats. There was a local connection between the village and the bus company as Fred Goodwin Wright, the co−founder of Wright´s Bus Service had married Jesse Maddison from Donington on Bain, daughter of Richard Maddison.
Wright´s Bus Service was nationalised in the early 1950´s and the familiar red and cream vehicles were replaced by those belonging to the Lincolnshire Road Car Company. By the middle of the decade many villagers owned motorcycles and cars and the age of public transport was slowly drawing to a close.

The War Memorial

   The Great War
Between 1914 and 1918 a whole generation of young British men went off to war. Over three−quarters of a million of them would not return. When war was declared a surge of patriotism swept the country as people responded to the call to arms. By 1916 a quarter of a million men were dead and, with no end to the war in sight, the government decided that the dead would not be returned to Britain but would be buried in official cemeteries near the battlefields. These men are remembered on War Memorials in towns and villages across the country. There are more than 37,000 World War One memorials in the United Kingdom bearing the names of over 750,000 dead.
The War Memorial beside St. Andrew´s Church at Donington on Bain includes the names of 15 men who died in the Great War.
   Arnold, Leo − Sergeant 15176, 7th Battalion, King´s Own Royal Lancaster Regiment

The Thiepval Memorial, the Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, bears the names of more than 72,000 officers and men from the United Kingdom and South Africa who died in the Somme sector before 20 March 1918 and have no known grave. Almost all of those commemorated died between July and November 1916. A small cemetery containing equal numbers of Commonwealth and French graves lies at the foot of the memorial. The memorial was built between 1928 and 1932 and unveiled by the Prince of Wales, in the presence of the President of France, on 31st July 1932. A link between Leo Arnold and the village has not been established.

He enlisted at Market Rasen and died, aged 22, on 17th April 1918. Charles Turner was buried in Mont Huon Military Cemetery, Le Treport (Seine−Maritime), France. As the original military cemetery at Le Treport filled, it became necessary to use the new site at Mont Huon. There are over 2,000 Commonwealth burials of the First World War in the cemetery. Le Treport was an important hospital centre and by July 1916, the town contained three general hospitals (the 3rd, 16th and 2nd Canadian), No. 3 Convalescent Depot and Lady Murray´s BRCS Hospital. The 7th Canadian, 47th and 16th USA General Hospitals arrived later, but all of the hospitals had closed by March 1919. Charles Turner´s father, John Turner, was born at Donington on Bain in 1858.

Abraham worked at Manor Farm for almost 50 years and lived to be 84, and when he retired he built himself a house in the village. William Lammiman, Abraham´s son, was born at Fulletby in 1851 and on 13th May 1873 at Donington on Bain married Sarah Tuplin. Sarah was born in 1853 at Ranby. She started "in service" when she was nine years old and although she never went to school she was able to read and write. William worked for a great many years on the railway and served on the village Parish Council and as school manager. He was also a member of the Wesleyan Chapel. Mary Lammiman, William´s sister, was born at Manor Farm and married Charles Freeborough, who was for thirty years the station master at Donington on Bain.

Turner
   Jane Turner, eldest daughter of William Turner and Ellen, was born at Donington on Bain in January 1806 and her descendents have lived in that village for more than 200 years. This long association with Donington on Bain may give the Turner family the distinction of having the longest continuous residency in the village.

Stenigot Notes

1872In 1872 White´s History, Gazetteer and Directory of Lincolnshire described Stenigot as ‘a picturesque parish of scattered houses and cottages, on the acclivities of a romantic dale, near the head of a rivulet.....containing 1321 acres of land all in one farm’ The farm was occupied by William Chatterton, lord of the manor and owner of the soil. The Church of St. Nicholas was described as ‘a small plain building, and the benefice is a rectory, valued in K.B. at £7. 12s. 2d. and now at £ 332, in the gift of G.M. Alington Esq., and incumbency of the Rev. Richard Pye Allington, who is also rector of Swinhope (near Binbrook), where he resides, and for whom the Rev. D.P. O´Connor of Biscathorpe officiates’ At the enclosure about 40 acres were allotted in lieu of part of the tithes
1872Principal inhabitants were William Chatterton (farmer) (Hallington) Robert Gamble (gamekeeper) Joseph Ingamells (parish clerk) Philip Kemp (farm bailiff)
1910In 1910 the Stenigot Estate was sold by Richard and Robert Chatterton to Col. H.T. Fenwick, CMG, DSO. Mr Fenwick was a partner in a Sunderland brewery and Liberal M.P. for the Houghton−le−Spring division of Durham from 1892 to 1895
1911Stenigot House was built for Col. Fenwick in 1911. The architect was A.N. Prentice
199228th November − David Dennis (b. Stenigot 9th August 1959) married Maria Clementine Sophie Anna Josepha Walburga Franziska Pauline Fatima Gfn von Ledebur−Wicheln (b. Munich 25th January 1963).

Thimbleby Notes

   The Lincolnshire village of Thimbleby is about 1¼ miles north−west of the market town of Horncastle, the parishes adjoining each other. The B1190 Horncastle to Bardney road runs through the village.
   Morton´s Directory of 1913 describes Thimbleby as a parish and village, bounded on the east by the river Bain, 1¼ miles west from Horncastle terminal station of a branch of the Great Northern railway, in the South Lindsey division of the county, parts of Lindsey, Horncastle soke, union, petty sessional division and county court district and rural deanery of Horncastle, archdeaconry of Stow and diocese of Lincoln. An Act of Parliament (44 Vict. c. xvii) transferred the Wildmore Fen Allotment to the new parish of Wildmore.
   In 1913 letters from Horncastle arrived at 7.30 a.m. and the wall letter box was cleared at 9.50 a.m. and 4.40 p.m. on week days only. Horncastle was the nearest money order and telegraph office.
   The village Church is dedicated to St. Margaret and is a building of stone in the Decorated style, consisting of chancel, nave, organ chamber, west porch and a western tower with octagonal spire containing a clock and one bell. The register dates from the year 1695 and there are seats for about 136 persons. The present building may well be the fourth place of worship to occupy the site. The medieval Church, which was possibly built or reconstructed in the fourteenth century, stood until 1744 by which time the roof was in a very poor state. It was decided to demolish the existing building and build a new smaller Church. In 1879 the Church was again refurbished at the instance of the Rector, Rev C.A. Potter, and Louth architect William Fowler was employed to redesign and manage the project. William Fowler raised the roof of the Church and inserted the present series of windows into the nave of the old building.
