Barnack, Stamford Road

Heading out from Barnack on the Stamford Road – date unknown. All of the buildings are still standing today (2015) albeit the inn/pub on the far right is now a private residence.

Barnack Village, Main Street

Main Street, Barnack – date unknown. The name on the shop appears to be A Webster “HOBART” albeit with a “post cards” sign above it. Alfred Webster was listed on the 1911 census as a Barnack based “Cycle Agent” and the cyclist standing outside might back that up !

5th Suffolks at Barnack

The Suffolk 5th Battalion somewhere along the Stamford Road near Barnack c.1914. These were more specifically the Second-Fifth or 2/5 Battalion who were home service only troops ….. the First-Fifth (1/5) were deployed overseas.

 

Barnack Station (c.1904)

The station master poses, along with his dog, outside Barnack Station in the early 1900s.

Sadly the station closed with the Stamford & Essendine Line as early as 1929, albeit the building remains in use as a private residence today.
