Kirkby Town Trail - Part 2

Continuing up Kirkby Row, one of the oldest highways in Kirkby, we come on our right hand side to an old sandstone dwelling, Sefton Cottage. The use of sandstone is a good indication of an old Kirkby building. Further along stood the Post Office, the site is opposite Holy Angels School. At the top of Kirkby row is the junction with Whitefield Drive (formerly Shaw Lane), and Glover's Brow. Turning into Glovers Brow we pass an old cottage before crossing the bridge over the railway line.

The present modern station building is to the left of the bridge, the original station and ticket office being on the right hand side.
