Clapham railway station serves the village of Clapham in North Yorkshire, England. The station is 48 miles (77 km) north-west of Leeds on the Leeds to Morecambe Line towards Lancaster and Morecambe. It is managed by Northern who provide all passenger train services.

The station (which is unstaffed) is situated just over a mile outside of Clapham.[1] Immediately to the east, the line crosses the River Wenning on a tall, five-arch viaduct.

The station was formerly known in the national timetable as Clapham (Yorkshire), to distinguish it from Clapham (London), until the latter was renamed Clapham High Street.

History

The station was opened by the "little" North Western Railway (NWR) on 30 July 1849 on their line from Skipton to Ingleton and became a junction the following year when the link along the Wenning Valley from Bentham was completed on 1 June 1850[2] to finish the route from Lancaster to Skipton.

The Ingleton route was subsequently extended northwards, as the Ingleton Branch Line, through Kirkby Lonsdale and Sedbergh to join the West Coast Main Line at Low Gill (near Tebay) by the Lancaster and Carlisle Railway (L&C) in 1861, but disagreements between the L&C's successor, the London and North Western Railway, and the Midland Railway (who had leased the NWR in 1859) over running rights and the subsequent construction of the Settle-Carlisle Line, meant that it never became the major Anglo-Scottish route that the NWR had originally intended.

The Ingleton Branch was closed to passenger traffic on 1 February 1954 and completely in July 1966,[3] although regular goods traffic had ended some months earlier. Lifting of the track followed in April 1967. A sharp curve (with a permanent 35 mph speed restriction) marks the site of the former junction, immediately west of the station.

The station ceased to handle goods traffic in 1968, when the remaining sidings were taken out of use & dismantled and the station signal box closed.

Facilities

The station is Operated by Northern Rail.

Waiting shelters are present on each platform, along with train information notice boards, but there are no toilets. At present, no ticket machine is available, so tickets can only be purchased on the train or in advance. The footbridge linking the platforms doesn't have ramps, so the westbound (trains heading towards Lancaster) platform isn't accessible for disabled passengers: step-free access is possible on the eastbound (trains heading towards Leeds) side.[4]

Northern Rail have (October 2018) applied for planning permission to install a ticket machine and electronic train departure boards, and also to provide a public toilet on the eastbound platform.

Services

Service improvements were introduced in the May 2018 timetable, though there is no longer a through service to Heysham Port. There are now seven trains each way Mondays-to-Saturdays and five trains each way on Sundays. Most trains shuttle between Leeds and Lancaster but some go through to Morecambe, whilst the first Monday-to-Saturday westbound train starts from Skipton and the last Monday-to-Saturday eastbound train terminates at Skipton.[5]
