Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cockermouth railway station was situated on the Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith Railway and served the town of Cockermouth, Cumbria, England. The station opened to passenger traffic on 2 January 1865, and closed on 18 April 1966. The station was the second to be built in the town. The original Cockermouth & Workington Railway station closed when the CK&PR station opened on an altered alignment. The station was immortalised in 1964 in the song "Slow Train" by Flanders and Swann. All traces of the station are now gone as the site is now occupied by The Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Base and the Cumbria Fire Service Headquarters, running down the left hand side of The Fire Service Headquarters building is the old track bed now a public walkway there are original bridges and features surviving to this day.show more
