Harrington railway station, Cumbria
Opened in 1846 by the Whitehaven Junction Railway (later part of the London & North Western Railway empire) on the line from Barrow-in-Furness to Carlisle. View north towards Workington and Carlisle.
The two raised darker areas on the platforms are known as "Harrington Humps", designed to raise the level of the platform and give easier access to trains. They were first tried here, hence the name, and are now used at numerous other rural stations.
