Route of former railway at Hornby
The station, which was closed to passengers in 1957 was sited on the other side of the bridge SD5868 : Site of former Hornby station, 1998 but the route of the railway is clearer on this side. It once formed part of the Midland Railway's line from Wennington to Lancaster and Morecambe, which closed in 1966. To one side a new housing estate was in construction.
