As one of the country’s few planned towns, Barrow-in-Furness is known for its plentiful Victorian architecture – to date, the Cumbrian town has eight Grade I, 15 Grade II* and 249 Grade II listed buildings. Barrow-in-Furness station is the larger of two railway stations serving the town, and was once well known for its long-distance sleeper services to London, which eventually stopped in the late 1980s. Built in 1846, the original station building was made from wood and located near St. George’s Square in the centre of the town. Since then, the station has been rebuilt on several occasions, firstly to replace the wooden station buildings with brick ones in 1863, then to relocate the station to its present site below Abbey Road in 1882 – and finally to repair damage caused by bombing during WWII. Northbound services run hourly to Whitehaven and Carlisle, while services to the south run to Manchester, Buxton and Hazel Grove.
