Friends of Askam Station have managed to resurrect a project for their station with spectacular results. The group had previously received some funding from the local committee for a small project for the station but following support from Community Rail, Northern (Arriva), the Parish Council and the National Lottery a more ambitious project was realised. The station platform now has the addition of replica railway benches; a concentric path leading to the garden area and various interpretation boards giving visitors and rail users a potted history of the villages of Askam & Ireleth. The station is a lovely place to enjoy the stunning views up the Duddon Estuary and the project has enhanced the station with charming and well-designed additions to the station platform. Well done to everyone involved.
