:!:
Map from 1953 shows Penda's Halt.
It also reminded me that I had not heard mentioned the area called Stanks for many years, (think it was the number 40 to Stanks).
Notice that Barnbow is also not shown for security reasons.

Is this the end of the story ...
or the beginning of a legend?

Funny how this type of thread brings the memories flooding back. Whenever we went to visit we went by bus, generally to Stanks, or was it Manston? I do remember that if we got the other one it was something of a hike. My father always preferred to travel by train rather than the bus where possible, so I was wondering why we didn't go by train and get off at this station. They were family on my mother's side and my father only went when he couldn't wriggle out of it eg Christmas.

:idea:
If memory serves me correctly the number 40 bus went to Stanks and the other service (56?) went to Austhorpe, that's where the hike will have been from I think.
