Penrith sign

Penrith was the first station on the eighth day of the 2014 holiday and marked our heading out into the Lake District. The front of the station, opposite the ruins of Penrith Castle, which I also explored.

From the front of the station there are two entrances. The first is to the ticket office, visible next to the telephone box in the previous photo:
