Birkdale Palace seen from the air in the 1940s. The SCLER line between Woodvale and Birkdale ran through a sand dune system and wind blown sand was a constant problem and an added expense for the railway.

Birkdale Palace looking north-east two years after closure. The track remained in situ until 1955.
