Normally when Clara comes home on the train we pick her up from local mainline stations at Lancaster or Kendal - but being an enterprising student again she managed to get a ticket from London to the nearest station to us for just £10!!! As the crow flies the distance to this station at Dent is only about 5 miles - but as its a bit up hill and down dale to get there it takes a while. We arrived to collect her in mist - I think we were actually in the cloud! and waited a few minutes for the train to arrive. We had actually never been to the station before and it seems quite an interesting place - it is on the Settle to Carlisle Railway and in the Yorkshire Dales National Park - and I didn't realise that it was the highest mainline station in England - what a claim to fame!
Wennington, which is on the Morecambe to Leeds line. I'm glad she is doing her bit to keep the small stations open!
