Kirklee Station

Overgrown and all but gone. This was once a fairly busy little station. Don't want to get into the whole 'only ghosts board trains here now' thing, but the place did have a noticeable eerieness to it. You have to work your way through the fallen trees and scrub to get to it. The line exited the tunnel under the hill in The Botanic Gardens and the station straddled a bridge over Ford Road. The line split in two soon after Kirklee. One line went to Maryhill Central, the other went north west to Dawsholm. All that remains is some platform on the Botanic gardens side of Ford Road. The bridge is gone, as are the station buildings. On the other side of the demolished bridge are new(ish) houses.
