CRL - Community Rail Lancashire

Station
Wennington

Wennington Station was originally a junction station where trains for Carnforth and Barrow branched off the line to Lancaster and Morecambe. The direct line to Lancaster was closed in 1965 and now Leeds & Morecambe trains run via Carnforth. The old track bed to Lancaster can be clearly seen from the road bridge just to the west of the station.

The station has recently been branded as a Gateway to the Forest Of Bowland with promotional materials on the station publicising the walking and cycling opportunities.

A copy of a poster promoting the walking and cycling routes can be downloaded by clicking here or visit forestofbowland.com/Bentham-Line for more details.

Wennington lies between the River Wenning and the River Greeta and is a small rural village. The station sits on the village outskirts and has good parking facilities. There are good walks into the surrounding countryside.
