History

Opened by the "little" North Western Railway in 1849, the station was originally known as "Settle", as it was the first station to serve the town, although situated some distance west of its centre. When the Settle-Carlisle Railway opened on 1 May 1876, the name was changed to "Settle Old" to distinguish it from Settle New on the line a mile to the east; Settle Old became "Giggleswick" on 1 November 1877.[1][2]

The station did have more substantial buildings in the past, along with a goods yard, water tower and signal box. These were all demolished/removed after the station closed to goods traffic and was downgraded to unmanned halt status in 1970.

Facilities

The only buildings now provided here are standard waiting shelters - a new bespoke one was opened on the westbound platform in November 2016.[3] The two platforms are of differing construction - the westbound is wooden, whilst the eastbound equivalent is stone/concrete.[4] They are linked by a barrow crossing, so the station is fully step free (though the National Rail Enquiries service and Northern recommend that disabled passengers only use this with assistance).[5] Train running information provision is limited to information posters and a telephone link to the signal box at Settle Junction. Tickets can only be bought on the train, as no ticketing facilities are available here.

Service

On Monday to Saturdays, five trains a day headed from Giggleswick southbound to Skipton and Leeds and westbound to Lancaster. All but the first westbound service of the day continue to Morecambe and there was a single through train to & from Heysham Port to connect with the sailing to the Isle of Man.[6]

Four trains run each way on Sundays throughout the year since the May 2011 timetable change (an improvement on the former twice-daily winter frequency).

From the start of the May 2018 summer timetable, additional services have been introduced. Seven trains each way now run to Lancaster and Skipton, with three of the former continuing to Morecambe and six of the latter to Leeds (though the direct train to and from Heysham has ceased). One additional train each way runs on Sundays.[7]
