Carlisle was once given the title of the UK's most haunted railway station and it's not hard to see why.

The strange and unexplainable happenings have long spooked staff and passengers alike with rumours of a headless apparition, a veiled spirit woman and the ghost of a child.

Bury Bolton Street Railway Station

Be on the lookout for a spooky spectre next time you are in the waiting room at Bury Bolton Street Station. A few years ago, a local man took a photograph of his grandson waiting for a train.
