Leominster’s elevated signal box

Just found some excellent images of Leominster’s Elevated Signal Box. The station is now a shadow of its former self, with just 2 platforms, and a part time ticket office. It once had 5 platforms – 2 mainline & 3 branchline – for the East & West bound branch lines lines to Bromyard, Worcester & Kington. There were also extensive goods sidings, an engine shed & a turntable. Of the 3 signal boxes, only the south box remains, alongside the site of the junction with the Worcester & Bromyard branch.
The splendid elevated signal box in the centre of the station survived until at least the early 1960’s I can’t find a date for its demolition.
