Railway path at  Halton Lea Gate
Railway path at Halton Lea Gate, taken 7 years ago
This section of "Lord Carlisle's Railway" from Brampton to Lambley dates from 1824 and served the coal mines in the area; it was closed in 1953. The hut may be an original plate layers hut.

This stretch of the line has been upgraded to make a good path for walkers and cyclists. It offers cyclists the opportunity to ride for over 4 km from Halton Lea Gate to Tindale away from the A689 and although inadequately signed has been designated as "National Cycle Route 72". All quite misleading - the path is not connected at either end to signed cycle routes, nor does it make any connection with the main strand of Route 72 (Hadrian's Cycleway) some 7 km to the north.
