Embsay railway station

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Embsay railway station is a railway station on the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. It serves the small village of Embsay in North Yorkshire, England. The station is a terminus on the railway and was re-opened in 1981.


The original station was on the Skipton to Ilkley Line of the Midland Railway and opened on 1 October 1888.[1] It was later modernised by the London, Midland and Scottish railway (LMS), and eventually closed as part of the Beeching Axe on 22 March 1965.[1] The station was re-opened by the Yorkshire Dales Railway (Embsay Railway) on 22 February 1981,[1] and has been refurbished to resemble its appearance in the days of the LMS.

In December 2004, the TV soap Emmerdale used the station for the location of Hotten station.

A Midland Railway signal box, dating from 1892, and designed to add character to the station, was opened on 6 February 2008.[2]
