Site of former Embleton station, 1991
View eastward on the A66 road at Lambfoot, towards Kewswick and Penrith: ex-LNW Cockermouth, Keswick & Penrith Railway. Embleton station here was closed 19/9/58 but the passenger and goods services on the line Workington - Keswick continued until 18/4/66, Keswick - Penrith 6/3/72. (It seems unlikely that the fine house remaining was the Station House, as it is angled sideways to the track-bed, which ran straight ahead).
