Nethertown

Nethertown is a request stop.

The railway station at Nethertown lies 62 Km/39 miles north of Barrow-in-Furness and is right on the coast. It is located between the villages of Nethertown and Coulderton and the nearest town is Egremont. Nethertown lies on the Cumbria Coastal Way and walkers heading north can aim for St Bees Head in the distance. Click here.

Vehicle access to the station is along a narrow farm lane and there is no parking provided at the station. Even turning cars at the station requires some skill due to the steepness and narrowness of the lane.

The low line of cliffs, approx 30 metres high, prevents views inland from the train but with such stunning views out to sea, this is hardly a problem. The colourful cottages and beach huts continue to appear on the shingle ridge of the shore line just below the railway. These started to appear as holiday homes for people from around Whitehaven and now there are a number of caravan and chalet parks along this section of coastline.
