Stixwould railway station was a station in Stixwould, Lincolnshire, England.[1][2]

History[edit]

The station was also the site of the Stixwould ferry across the river Witham, which closed in the 1960s.[3]

The station building and signal box have been converted into a private dwelling and guest house called Time Away. The line has become part of the Water Rail Way, supported by Sustrans. The platforms survive and one has a station name board.
