Strensall Crossing

This is a level crossing gate at Strensall Common (around 5 miles ouside York) with the gatekeepers cottage beyond. There are 3 or 4 houses on the far side of the tracks and driving across to them requires the gates to be opened by the keeper who clearly would prefer not to be summoned by a blast on a car horn! This crossing is on the edge of a local nature reserve , come back tomorrow to find out more about the lantern on the gate.................


  1. A rather rural railway- I like the look of that lantern.

  2. I have never seen anything like this crossing before!
