Name and dates

Low Row (1838-1959)

Opened on the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station to the east of a level crossing. The goods yard was to the west, on the north side of the line and approached from the east. A loop ran round the south side of the westbound platform, leading to a siding to the east. To the west was a siding and turnplate for Carricks Factory, to the south.

The level crossing remains in operation. A stone built station building, of two storeys is to the south of the line, just east of the level crossing.

The signal box was on the north side of the line, west of the level crossing. Replaced by a new signal box in 2009 on the south side, just east of the former station building. This box is built in a traditional style.
