Driving through floods at site of Eskmeals station, 1966
View westwards at the mouth of the River Esk on the Cumbrian Coast, with my wife driving our Morris 1800 through the water. The railway is the Cumbrian Coast Line, ex-Furness Railway Carnforth - Barrow-in-Furness (to left) - (to right) Sellafield - Whitehaven; Eskmeals station had been right here, but was closed 3/8/59.
