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.
