Altcar Rifle Station

I blogged about this former railway station just to the north of the present Hightown Station on Merseyrail’s Northern Line between Liverpool and Southport not so long ago. My previous posting is available via the link below:-

I have now taken a photo of the remains of the former station’s platforms and it’s below. They can be clearly seen from the footpath/cycle path that runs from Hightown to Formby.

Formby – Cycle/footpath bridge repaired

Big thanks to Sefton Council’s Rights of Way Team for getting this cycle/footbridge rebuilt just south of Andrew’s Lane in Formby:-

I had blogged about the need for action to taken over the old and in poor condition bridge. My previous postings refer and are accessible via the link below:-
