Hubberts Bridge railway station serves the village of Hubberts Bridge in Lincolnshire, England. It is located on the Sleaford to Boston section of the Nottingham to Skegness line. Opened along with the line by the Boston, Sleaford and Midland Counties Railway in 1859,[1] The eastbound platform is longer than the westbound platform: it can accommodate a three-car train, whereas the westbound platform can only accommodate a two-car train.[2]

The station is now owned by Network Rail and managed by East Midlands Railway who provide all rail services.

A signal box at the West end of the station supervises a level crossing and the western end of the single track section from Boston. However, the station itself is unstaffed and offers limited facilities other than two shelters, bicycle storage, timetables and modern 'Help Points'. The full range of tickets for travel are purchased from the guard on the train at no extra cost, there are no retail facilities at this station.

Services[edit]

As of December 2018, there are typically two daily services in each direction to Nottingham and Skegness (one pair in the morning, the other in the late afternoon). There are no Sunday services.[3]
