Heysham Port was a short cycle ride from Lancaster and is the main port for getting to Douglas on the Isle of Man. In spite of that the station is only small and only has train services to coincide with one sailing a day. The approach to the station from the car park:

On the platform, looking west towards the port terminal, with its security, who quickly became interested in my wandering around with a camera. So these shots were previewed by a curious detective, who warned me not to take photos inside the restricted area or of the nearby nuclear power station.
