Though within a few metres of the West Coast main railway line and oddly proportioned to have been built as a private home, I'm not sure whether this was part of Bay Horse Station; perhaps it was a signal 'box'. The station opened in the 1830s (I think), to serve Cockerham, Dolphinholme, Forton and South Ellel, and closed in 1960s rationalisation of the national railway network. In the intervening period, Bay Horse station was the scene of a number of train crashes, which included fatalities.
