A cold and frosty Boxing Day morning at Bowland, looking west from the A7 towards the recent replacement for the old bridge no 80 on the Waverley Route [see image 36188]. No trace now remains of the former Bowland station (1848-1953) which stood to the left of the bridge.

Loooking east towards the site of Bowland station on 30 July 2013 from the road bridge taking the B710 over the Gala Water. Earth moving equipment is currently employed on the site and the deck of bridge no 80 has recently been removed. The road junction with the A7 lies just beyond the trees.
