Millom station lies on the Cumbrian Coast Line, on the other side of Duddon Sands from Askam. We arrived at around school closing time, so the trains were also quite busy with schoolchildren.

The front of the station building, which is run as a pub:

A strange barrow serves as a planter just in the corner of the car park in front of the station building:
