Wainfleet Station

Welcome to the ancient port and market town of Wainfleet. The town is steeped in history and inludes; the Grade I listed Magdalen College School, built in 1484 by William of Waynflete and now houses a museum.


Other places of interest are the "London-style" terrace, commissioned by Bethlem Hospital in 1847 – the design and specifications are similar to those found in Southwark, London. The busy market place holds 2 Grade II listed structures; a clock tower and a Buttercross from where John Wesley preached. Wainfleet is also home to Batemans brewery and visitor centre, home to our famous music trains and a visit is recommended.
