Bare Lane station is a small station on the outskirts of Morecambe, and a very pleasant walk along the shore from Morecambe itself. The station has two platforms, connected by a level crossing at the western end of the station. The entrance to platform 1, from which most trains depart:

Next to the etrance of platform 2 is the remains of a now demolished signal box. It must have gone quite recently since signs at the station still direct people to the platform "next to the signal box":
