A GWR signal dating probably from 1908 when the Wye Valley Railway was taken over by the Great Western Railway. It is marked on the O.S. 25" map, 1921 edition.


The signal is constructed in cast and wrought iron. A cylindrical cast iron post carries a wrought iron gantry with two signals, a 'distant' and a 'home', both with onion finials.
