LocationEdit

The stop can be found between Ballajora Station and 'Belle Vue (For Port-E-Vullen)'. The poles bearing the overhead lines on the line are numbered from Derby Castle, the railway's southern terminus, and Lewaigue Halt can be found between pole numbers 811 and 812. The halt is located on Jack's Lane (designated C13) in the hamlet of Lewaigue.

UsageEdit

The stop is widely used by The Venture Centre, a nearby outdoor pursuits centre. The stop consists of a waiting shelter for passengers, erected in 1987. The former corrugated iron shelter was demolished in 1986 after vandalism.[1]
