Weaverthorpe railway station

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Weaverthorpe railway station was a minor railway station serving the village of Sherburn in North Yorkshire, England. Located on the York to Scarborough Line it was opened on 5 July 1845 by the York and North Midland Railway. It closed on 22 September 1930. The station was originally named Sherburn, but was renamed Wykeham (after a village 3 miles distant) on 1 April 1874, to avoid confusion with three other stations also named Sherburn. The name changed again after the opening of a station in Wykeham itself (on the Forge Valley Line), and the station became 'Weaverthorpe' on 1 May 1882.

Passengers wishing to go to Weaverthorpe would have been very disappointed as that village was located 5 miles distant, over the Wolds escarpment!
