44. Station Brae

Looking down Station Brae.  This steep footpath links the centre of the village with Seaview Terrace and is the route the kids take up to school in the morning after buying their sweeties from the shop.  The railings are handy to pull yourself up when there's ice and snow lying!

I recently learned that Johnshaven's train station (built in the 1870s, closed in the 1960s) was paid for by the man whose house is on the right of this photo (Serena House).  He also had the path built so he could easily get from his house to the station, hence its name.
