Early Morning, Grange-over-Sands Railway Station
Grange-over-Sands is a small Cumbrian seaside town lying on the north side of Morecambe Bay. Originally a small fishing village, Grange developed during the second half of the 19th Century with the arrival of the Lancaster & Ulverston Railway (later absorbed into the Furness Railway), when it became a popular seaside resort and much of this is evident in the Town's (mostly unspoiled) Victorian architecture.

The Ulverstone & Lancaster Railway was opened through the first station on this site on 27th August 1857: the first passenger train ran on 1st September. The Furness Railway, having absorbed the U&LR in 1862, commissioned the architect Edward Graham Paley of Lancaster to design the present station, which was built in 1864-72.

Grange station is listed Grade II and stands in a Conservation Area. It was restored in 1997/98. The 'FR' of the Furness Railway can be seen (reversed) on this lamp bracket. The Furness Railway became a part of the London, Midland & Scottish Railway in 1922.
