THE old gate in Railway Walk in Mablethorpe has been given a facelift thanks to a group of local residents.

The Green Exercise Team have authentically revamped, rebuilt and repainted the gate to its former glory.

Meanwhile the Dales Trust have been busy planting in the railway turntable area and will shortly be installing an interpretation board.

The gate is now fixed in position to replicate it being opened to allow the little train through.
