Bare Lane railway station serves the village of Bare, which is a suburb of Morecambe. It is located on the Lancaster to Morecambe Branch Line about half a mile after the line leaves the West Coast main Line.
The old station building dates from 1864 and became a private dwelling when staffing was withdrawn from the station. Both lines through the station are bi-directional and each platform has its own independent, electronic platform screens to keep passengers informed of services.
There is only a single waiting shelter on platform 1, together with a canopy attached to the former station house. There is no shelter on platform 2 and that is something that the Station Adopters have in their Action Plan as an urgent aspiration.
There is a poster case for the Station Adopters on platform 1, together with a couple of posters outlining the history of the station and showing it in around 1910 (Platform 2). In addition, the former signal box compound is being regenerated by the Station Adopters, under licence from Network Rail, and a large planting bed now occupies the footprint of the former signal box. A poster explains about the site for those interested.
The station is mentioned in the walking leaflets produced by the Leeds, Lancaster and Morecambe Community Rail Partnership and they have provided both posters and a leaflet dispenser for those interested.
