Bare Lane Station Adopters


The Lancaster & District Conservation Volunteers have acted as the Northern Station Adopters at Bare Lane since October 2013. The Station Adoption Fund has been strongly instrumental in our success, although we have also attracted private funding and grants from a range of local organisations and individuals. YOU can still get in touch to sponsor a tub or planter! Nevertheless, we have created an attractive, welcoming and informative station environment, with platform tubs, planters and beds supporting many shrubs and flowers that enhance the quality of wildlife habitats and the visual appearance of the station and its environs.


There is a strong local heritage dimension to complement that of the natural environment, with quality poster boards and information about the station, its staff and history back to when it was opened in 1864. Great Wood School now has its own planter for vegetable seeds, sown and raised by the children in school and then planted out at the station for passengers to pick and enjoy when ready. There has been significant enhancement and rejuvenation and the station looks cared for and wanted, although there is still a lot to do, both in terms of daily management and bringing back parts of the station that have been neglected by successive private train operators. The station adopters must continually push forward their plans by constantly working closely with both Northern and Network Rail to achieve things on the ground for all to see.
