Heswall sign

Heswall is on the Borderlands Line to Wales and is unelectrified, and has much more of the feeling of a station in the middle of nowhere than even the more rural Merseyrail stations:

Borderlands Line Linking Wales
and Merseyside

We arrived by bike in a little bit of a hurry, and the station tunnel was basically the first thing we saw:

But we needed to get up to platform 1 via this ramp:
