Why take the train to Althorpe?
Situated four miles west of Scunthorpe, the small village of Althorpe is best known for the King George V Swing Bridge (also known as Keadby Bridge), which connects the Isle of Axholme to the rest of North Lincolnshire. In fact, many trains to Althorpe actually cross this distinctive bridge, which straddles the River Trent.
The train station serves plenty of commuters as it’s also close to the villages of Keadby and Gunness. Planning a trip? Don’t confuse Althorpe with Althorp, the ancestral family home of the Spencers and where Princess Diana is buried…Buy tickets
