Meols Cop! Final station of a holiday based at the other end of Merseyrail's network, Meols! We arrived after cycling a strange zig-zag field edge route from Bescar Lane and waited at this little station on the outskirts of Southport while gardeners mowed the lawns.

The entrance to the station is on the corner of a crossroads to the station's north:

The southern end of the platform is grassed over with raised beds in the centre, and was being mown when we visited:
