Marcheys House Signal Box controls the line between North Seaton and Bedlington North Signal Box, as well as the branch to Winning Signal Box, and protects a level crossing. This is frequently used by Alcan alumina traffic to gain access between Alcan at Lynemouth and the ship unloading facility at North Blyth.
With the closure of Ashington Signal Box, the indicators for Green Lane AHB level crossing now show here. Telephone block is used between the edge of Marcheys House absolute block and Lynemouth; the STOP boards for this are just north of Hirst Lane Gate Box.
