Site of Cockermouth station, 1986
View eastward, towards Penrith: ex-LNW (Workington, Cockermouth, Keswick & Penrith section). The station, and the line between Keswick and Workington, had been closed from 18/4/66 - and obviously now 20 years later had been redeveloped. The rest of this route - the only effective rail access to the Lake District - was closed from 8/9/72, and considerable stretches were used to 'improve' the A66 trunk road. The mountain in the distance is Skiddaw (3,054 ft.).
