It’s a lean-to gym, but not as we know it. Looking North towards Riccarton, we see that Kielder Forest station [see image 42061] now serves the community in four ways: there are two houses in the former station building (right); a car service garage built on the trackbed (centre); and a gym in an annexe to the garage (left). Finally, the petrol pumps in the foreground are – unusually – operated by volunteer staff. There is a trackbed footpath South from here.
