Former Halton station near Lancaster
Former Halton station near Lancaster
The station building dates from 1907, replacing an earlier structure that was destroyed by fire. It closed to passengers in 1966, and the railway line from Lancaster as far as Caton is now part of the Way of the Roses cycle route, as evidenced by the cyclists seen here. It was originally a line of the Midland Railway connecting with their Carnforth-Leeds route at Wennington.
The Way of the Roses
The Way of the Roses is a 170 mile signed cycle route from Morecambe to Bridlington, nearly all on public roads and making extensive use of other National Cycle Network routes. It forms a shorter and less demanding alternative to the original "coast to coast" cycle route. Most people who tackle it do it in three or four days, though some manage it in two.
