Silverdale railway station is used by the little community of Silverdale and the surrounding Lancashire villages. When the station opened in the mid-19th century by the Ulverstone and Lancaster Railway, it was originally called the Knowllys Hill. It was later absorbed into the London Midland and Scottish Railway and today is managed, along with the trains that pass through on the Furness Line, by Northern. The original stone stationmaster’s house still exists next to one of the two platforms, though it was sold off to a private investor some time ago. There are no facilities for buying tickets, so passengers are required to buy them online in advance or on board the train with the conductor. There’s an irregular direct service several times a day to Barrow-in-Furness in 48 minutes and northbound to Lancaster in 16 minutes.
If you like the great outdoors, you’ve come to the right place. When you step off in Silverdale, you can easily reach the walking footpaths at the Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Gait Barrows National Nature Reserve.
