    Flasher relay. The pulse signal from this feeds through to the panel fascia and makes the points flash while they are out of correspondence.

    Viking Stone GRV:
    This photo dates to circa 1968-71. Knighton level crossing was located at 69 miles 00 chains between Uffington and Shrivenham adjacent to Knighton Copse. It was equipped with automatic half barriers in late 1966 but then closed c1978 (TBC) when the line speed was raised to 125mph. The road (Claypit Lane) was diverted to pass beneath the railway by way of a new under bridge slightly to the east but a public footpath crossing still exists where the crossing used to be.

    Viking Stone GRV:

    The area beyond the steel gate was once occupied by Dauntsey station which closed in January 1965. The brick bridge arch above the main lines was replaced by a modern straight concrete beam in April 2014 to enable the installation of overhead electrification equipment.
