The Station

Built in the traditional Derby Gothic Style in the 1870s by George Black of Carlisle the station included a Cattle Dock and a 12,000 gallon water tank.

In its heyday Lazonby was a busy station handling a large volume of lumber from local forests and livestock from the goods yard, which doubled as a centre for sheep auctions. The former goods yard and shed is now owned by a bakery, Bells of Lazonby, a major local employer.
