Bedlington North Signal Box is one of two signal boxes in Bedlington, and is situated at Bedlington North Junction. Currently, it controls the lines from Bedlington South to Morpeth and to Lynemouth, but previously it also controlled the northern end of Bedlington Station as well as a down side siding. It works to Bedlington South Signal Box, Morpeth PSB, Marcheys House Signal Box and Winning Signal Box (the latter two having taking over the functions of West Sleekburn Signal Box when it was closed.)
