Goose Lane Crossing Keepers Cottage looking east in May 1996. The railway would have crossed the lane on the right of this view. Turn ninety degrees to the left and the view would be of Irton Waterworks.

Goose Lane Crossing

Goose Lane Crossing was situated opposite Irton Waterworks, with the village of Irton being about half a mile east.

The railway ran on the west side of the property.

Today much of the character of the gate house is retained.


Samuel Keast was a platelayer at Goose Lane crossing in 1911 and his wife Jessie Keast was the gate keeper. By 1921 they had moved to Broadmires Crossing.


Walter Carr was a platelayer at Goose Lane in 1939.
