Station Name: LONGHIRST

In September 1978, almost three decades after the station closed to passengers, this road sign on the A197 between Pegswood and Ashington still directs motorists to Longhirst Station; if it had been open the white BR double arrow symbol on a red background would have been added. The small residential area around the former station to which it points continues to be known as Longhirst Station although not shown as such on maps.
