Greenodd

Greenodd

The rushland valleys in greenodd offer a stunning extensive range of woodlands that scatted into the distance views of the valley. The woodlands used to be the main source of wood for bobbins, barrels, handles, baskets and so-forth, and has only relatively recently been given peace and quiet to re-grow and survive.

Until the 1980s Greenodd was on the A590 trunk road from Barrow to Levens Bridge. Traffic volumes were a major problem for the small village. These problems were alleviated by the building of a bypass to take the traffic over a new bridge across the River Crake. The village is now effectively a cul-de-sac. Greenodd station was served by the Lakeside branch of the Furness Railway from 1869 until its closure in 1965. Today there is no trace of the railway, the station having been demolished to make way for a dual-carriageway road. Greenodd is now also on the W2W Cycle Route between Walney and Wearmouth.
