Located on the edge of the Duddon Estuary and overlooked by the Lakeland fells, this rural station is 5 km/3 miles from Millom.
Close to Green Road station and accessible by a footpath is Arnaby Moss, which is part of the Duddon Special Area of Conservation. This is a quiet spot that is ideal for people wanting to enjoy tranquility, wildlife and walking.
