hearsay The railway was promoted by the Brogden Family. A route was surveyed by McLean and Stileman, 1850.
19 1/2 miles.
The railway caused enormous changes to the northern shore of Morecambe Bay and the Kent Estuary. From the openeing in 1859 up to the 1870s over 1100 acres of land were reclaimed. Above the viaduct 700 acres of new marsh appeared as a result of silting, some of which was reclaimed later.
