Cark sign

Cark and Cartmel station is in Cark but quite far from Cartmel. Indeed, as the crow flies Cartmel is closer to Grange-over-Sands but since there's a hill in the way it's a rather more convenient walk, carriage, or bike ride from Cartmel to Cark station. We of course arrived by bike, to be greeted by the gateway to the station carpark:

An old clock is embedded in the station building, but lacks hands:

The canopied area on platform 1 has been enclosed with an automatic sliding door to make a shelter:
