Bescar Lane Railway Station

 Bescar Lane Railway Station is a small countryside stop on the Manchester to Southport Line. It can be found in the village of Scarisbrick approx. 7 miles to the east of Southport. It is unmanned with only limited facilities with no car parking, ticketing or refreshment facilities on the station or nearby. The station has small passenger numbers with only 3988 recorded users in 2016 / 17, an average of just 77 passengers per week.

The station was originally opened in April 1855 and has undergone a number of changes since then. rly 1990's both platforms were opposite each other with the remains of the westbound platform still showing despite it moving to the other side of the level crossing a few years ago. The station was served by a signal box alongside the level crossing but this was also removed around the time of the platform redevelopment.

The set of pictures was taken on August 21st 2018 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera.
