Langwathby station was the first of our final day's exploration of the Settle-Carlisle line, and the sun was still low in the sky while we wandered about the station and village. The approach to the northbound platform 1 from the A686 which passes under the line at the north end of the station:

The village and station were full of jerseys and yellow bikes in celebration of the recent passage of the Tour of Britain, as you can see in this view back towards the gate from platform 1:
