First of all it is Wymondham, Leics and the name , as far as we know, was given to our cottage by the previous owner because of his connection with and interest in northern railways. I have only just seen your post.

Thank you for responding to my enquiry. I thought it was either as is the case, a person interested in railways (Blea Moor is probably the most isolated signalbox in England and is still operational) or maybe a former occupant of your house was a railwayman transferred to,the local station in the village. The old railway companies did move their employees around long before relocation became common.

Thank you for clearing up this matter for me.
