Bentham is a small station on the line between Carnforth and Settle and we visited on a particularly bright afternoon. The entrance to the station is via a ramp down from Station Road which crosses the line at the station's east end. Looking south down the approach road towards the station, with the footbridge just visible in the distance:

The entrance gives onto platform 1. Here we look west at the 1950s station building, now owned by a local friends group:

Another look under the concrete canopy of the station building, showing the various paintings and planters:

At the eastern end of the platforms a footbridge provides access to the opposite platform:

Under the road bridge just beyond the footbridge a small sign explains various of the railway signs to be seen around the place:

Beyond the footbridge and road bridge is a small extra piece of platform 1. Looking east:
