Hall-i'-th'-Wood sign

Hall-i'-th'wood station is perhaps the most punctuated station on the rail network, but not the most elaborate; it's just two platforms on an embankment on the Ribble Valley line. It's named after a local hall of the same name but ws actually opened in the 1980s to serve a new housing estate.

This bridge takes the railway over the A58:
