History

The station was opened on 1 June 1850 by the "little" North Western Railway, later taken over by the Midland Railway.[2] During part of the 19th century, it was known as Bentham High[3] as the neighbouring settlement of Low Bentham also had its own station (although this only lasted for three years, being closed to passenger traffic in 1853).

The station building (built in 1955/56 after the original Midland structure was demolished by British Railways) is now privately owned,[4] the station having been reduced to unstaffed halt status in October 1970.[5] It has had its own community volunteer support group (The Friends of Bentham Station) since September 2011, which is based in the aforementioned building on the eastbound platform and has support from various local organisations (such as the route's Rail User Group, Craven District Council & the Leeds-Lancaster-Morecambe Line Community Rail Partnership).

Facilities

Timetable posters and digital information screens on both platforms provide train running information.

Services

All services are operated by Northern. There are seven services each way on weekdays and Saturdays. Westbound, trains run to Wennington, Carnforth, Lancaster and Morecambe (certain trains only), whilst trains in the other direction run to Clapham, Giggleswick, Skipton and Leeds.[6] Connections for Bradford Forster Square are available at Shipley, although through trains do operate occasionally if the line to Leeds is closed for engineering work.

On Sundays there are now five services in each direction throughout the year. The alterations to give better journey opportunities for commuters to both Leeds and Lancaster (and additional Sunday services) were implemented at the May 2018 timetable change[7]. Further station improvements are also planned, such as the installation of ticket machines, video help points and improved lighting.[8] The removal of "Pacer" DMUs from the route is also scheduled for 2019.
