Clare Railway Station

9 February 2013

Both of us were suffering from coughs and chest infections, Stephen in particular, but it being Stephen's birthday he was keen to go out somewhere. We elected for a visit to Clare's railway station and castle. When we got there we found the castle closed for some repair work, so contented ourselves with a wander around the country park.

Stephen and the dogs wait for a train - it may be a long wait

Clare railway station opened in 1865 on the Great Eastern Railway's Stour Valley route, and closed in 1967

A little bit of track has been put down to tantalise. The castle is on the right, currently closed to visitors.
