Temple Sowerby

Temple Sowerby, between Penrith and Appleby, closed to passengers in 1953, nine years before the Stainmore line itself. This view shows the station house, now a private residence. The Disused Stations website also shows the station itself which is joined on to this building but not visible from the public road. (Map Reference NY613259). Nearby Kirby Thore station, closed on the same date, has not been so fortunate and disappeared completely when the A66 trunk road was realigned.
