Corkickle railway station lies just outside Cumbria’s seaside town of Whitehaven in the small community of Corkickle. It opened in the mid-19th century towards the end of an almost mile-long tunnel leading towards Whitehaven. Its single platform, tracks and the trains that pass through are maintained and operated by Northern. Unlike many stations, its original building is still intact today, though it was sold off to a private investor for residential housing some years ago. There are few facilities at Corkickle which include a help telephone, a digital display timetable with passenger information, a shelter, and station lighting. There a several direct departures a day from Corkickle to Carlisle taking 1 hour 14 minutes, to Whitehaven in 3 minutes, and Barrow-in-furness in 1 hour 24 minutes.
When you step off at the tiny station, you’ll be just a stone’s throw away from the Whitehaven Rugby League Football Club which often has matches during the weekend. Alternatively, just a 10-minute walk into Whitehaven brings you to the Rum Story, a museum which has recreated a three-century old Caribbean town and chronicles the history of the liquor.
