Keeping track of railway walks
A new series of walks have just been published which link railway stations along the Bentham Line which runs between Morecambe and Leeds.
There are twelve walks which link adjacent stations between Heysham and Skipton.
The project was provided by the Leeds-Morecambe Community Rail Partnership (CRP) and the Lancaster and Skipton Rail User Group (LASRUG). The project has also been supported by Northern Rail. An inaugural walk took place on from Morecambe to Bare Lane when members of LASRUG and some of the Directors of the CRP enjoyed the sunshine.
Special dispensers have been provided at the stations to hold copies of the leaflets. These holders have flip tops which keep the leaflets dry. Walks vary from 2½ to about 11½ miles in length providing something for everyone.
