Gargrave railway station serves the village of Gargrave in North Yorkshire, England. It is 30 miles (48 km) north-west of Leeds on the Leeds to Morecambe Line operated by Northern Trains who also manage the station.

The station was opened on 30 July 1849 by the "little" North Western Railway, later taken over by the Midland Railway.[1] The original stone shelters survive on each platform, but the main wooden station building is now in private use.[2]

Facilities

It is unstaffed and until 2019 had no ticket machine (so travellers had to buy tickets in advance or on the train). A new ticket machine has now been installed, along with digital information screens as part of an ongoing station upgrade process by train operator first announced back in 2016.[3] Train running information is also provided by timetable posters and telephone.

Step-free access is only possible for southbound travellers, as the northbound platform can only be reached via steps from the road bridge.[4]

Pennine Way

The Pennine Way, a long distance path, crosses the railway a few hundred yards to the west of the station.

The service level from here in both directions was increased at the May 2018 timetable change, as a consequence of the 2015 Northern franchise award to Arriva Rail North.[5] The improvements included two additional trains each way on the Leeds - Lancaster route on weekdays and an extra train on Sundays - these began operating on 20 May 2018 with the start of the summer timetable. In total there are now fourteen departures northbound (up from ten prior to May 2018) - eight to Lancaster and five to Carlisle, plus one evening train to Ribblehead. Five of the Lancaster trains continue to Morecambe, but the daily direct Heysham train has now ceased on weekdays (though it does run on a Sunday since the winter 2019 timetable update). Southbound there are thirteen departures to Leeds, plus a single late evening departure to Skipton only (though this has a connection to Leeds from there).

Eight trains each way call on Sundays (five to Lancaster and Morecambe, three to Carlisle northbound).[6]
