History

The station was completed by the Midland Railway in 1876 and was opened for passengers on 1 May. It was initially named "Horton".[1] The London Midland and Scottish Railway absorbed the Midland Railway on 1 January 1923 and renamed the station as Horton-in-Ribblesdale on 26 September 1927.[2]

The station buildings were designed by the Midland Railway company architect John Holloway Sanders.[3]

The station is currently (2016) served and managed by Northern, as are all the trains calling at the station. It is unstaffed, with no ticket vending facilities (so tickets can only be purchased in advance or on the train). The station waiting room is open for public use, having been restored by the Settle & Carlisle Railway Trust in 2002 as part of a wider refurbishment of the main buildings on the eastern side (other parts of the building are rented out for commercial use).[4]

It is located near to Pen-y-ghent, one of the mountains known collectively as the Yorkshire Three Peaks. The station and the village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale are at 850 feet above sea level, as stated on the decorative station information board, and are about 6 miles (10 km) north of Settle.

In the 1950s and 1960s under stationmaster Taylor, Horton won the "Best Kept Station" award for 17 consecutive years.[5] The station lost its passenger service on 4 May 1970, but reopened in July 1986,[6] along with several other local stations on the line under British Rail.

Facilities

As the station does not have a footbridge, the platforms are linked by a foot crossing (known in railway terms as a barrow crossing).[7] Both platforms are lower than standard (though the southbound one has been partially raised to improve access to trains); there is no step-free access.[8] Train running information is available via telephone and timetable posters.

Service

There are about one train every two hours in each direction: southbound to Leeds (seven in total) and northbound to Carlisle (eight, plus one evening train that terminates at Ribblehead). The total is slightly unbalanced as some trains do not stop here. There is an extra train to Leeds on Saturdays, whilst there are five trains a day to both Leeds and Carlisle on Sundays (one of the former now continues to Nottingham and a second to Sheffield).[9]
