History

The line from Gilling to Helmsley opened on 9 October 1871.[2] The occasion was marked by a dinner held at the Black Swan Hotel.

The extension to Kirby Moorside opened on 1 January 1874.[3]

From here to Pickering the line ran almost parallel to today's A170 trunk road.

There was no railway over the area between Helmsley and Thirsk via Sutton Bank. Instead, there was a route south of Helmsley that passed through a cutting at Caulkeys Bank, Nunnington, and then turned west towards Gilling, where the Thirsk and Malton (T&M) Line from Pilmoor (at the East Coast Main Line) was met. To get to Thirsk, trains would have had to travel to Gilling and Pilmoor first, turning north.

The Southern end of the building is occupied by The Rural Chauffeur, a local chauffeur service.
