Kingswear Signal Box - http://tillyweb.biz/gallery/kk/kingswear.htm

Used as a Railway Control Office. Anyone know when it was built? Suspect AFTER 2010.

I thought this replica box had been discussed on here previously although I can't see such a discussion. My understanding is that it was refused (retrospective) planning consent in 2012 but that it was subsequently granted, so after 2010 sounds right to me. Some of the locals weren't very happy about it going up.
