Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Frisby railway station was a former station serving the village of Frisby on the Wreake in Leicestershire. The station was situated at a level crossing on the road to Hoby. The station opened in 1847 on the Syston and Peterborough Railway, but until 1849 it only had a service on Melton market days. It closed in 1961. There were no goods facilities at the station. Frisby on the Wreake is a village in England located near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire. The name of the village was coined by Danish invaders in the 9th or 10th centuries and refers to the farm or settlement of the Frisians. The "on the Wreake" suffix was added later to distinguish the village from another Frisby, near Billesdon, about 8 mi to the south east. Wreake refers to the River Wreake. The name of the river has its origins in a Danish word referring to the "meandering" nature of the river.show more
