Practical Considerations

If you are considering a 'real world' visit to Lazonby and Kirkoswald Station, you might like to note that the station lies within the small village of Lazonby. Kirkoswald is an even smaller village located approximately one and a half miles away (on the opposite side of the River Eden).

With two exceptions, all of the structures featured on this page are visible from the station platforms, the station car-park and / or the station approach road.

The exceptions are Location IDs 292520 and 292525. These are located a significant distance from the railway (approximately a quarter of a mile, beside the road leading to Eden Bridge and Kirkoswald). These boundary markers indicate the location of the entrance to a section of land purchased by the Midland Railway Company solely to facilitate access to the River Eden. During the Victorian era, the water needed for the station buildings and steam locomotives was extracted from the river at this location, then pumped up the hill to the railway station.
