Britain’s 100 Best Railway Stations

 BookCover small

Having been given a copy of Simon Jenkins “Britain’s 100 Best Railway Stations” it was decreed that we should set ourselves the task of visting them.


We made a brief stopover at Penrith station on a visit to the town, which was more interesting than we remembered. Later in the day we visited the National Trust properties Acorn Bank and Keld Chapel.

We visited Ribblehead staion on a fairly wild and woolly day although it stopped raining for the time we were out of the car. Aside from the station and viaduct there isn’t much else to see although there are some displays in the station about its history.

Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire

We visited Hebden Bridge station as part of a short walk along the course of the railway and canal. Not a very inspiring day for a walk - damp but not raining. The sun attempted to break through the clouds but failed.
