Description"Many ancient sites in Britain were either obliterated or severely damaged by the building of railways in the nineteenth century. Furness Abbey came close to being one of them. Luckily a short diversion through a tunnel was made rather than running the line directly through the Abbey ruins. Within a year of the opening of the line a station had been opened to serve the Abbey which became a popular excursion destination." Photo by Jonathan Thacker, 2011.
