    In January 2020, my wife and I stayed, once again, to the Southeast of the City of Lancaster and explored the area between the Lune estuary and the Wyre estuary. It is a superb area for watching overwintering birds!

    It gave me another opportunity to look at railways in the area. After a visit in November 2019 when I explored the Glasson Dock branch, this time I took the chance to explore the railway which linked Knott End at the mouth of the River Wyre with the West Coast mainline near Garstang.

    The first of two articles can be read by following the link below. ....

    This is my second article about the line between Knott End and Garstang. It completes the full length of the line. I am very grateful to a number of people for permission given to publish their photographs as part of the article. You will see their pictures referenced throughout.

    I hope that I will get round to publishing one further article about the motive power and rolling stock on the line.
