The long battle to save historical buildings which formed part of Skegness Train Station came to an end in March, 2011, when demolition of the dilapidated buildings began.
The demolition work marks the beginning of a £21million development scheme by Network Rail, which includes renewal of the stretch of track between Skegness and Boston.
After the clearing of the rubble, the site will be landscaped with opportunities for future development.
A campaign to save the stationmaster’s house, built in 1873, came to nothing due to legal and financial issues.
