Mytholmroyd Railway Station.

Mytholmroyd Railway Station opened in May 1847 6 years after the railway passed through the town and has been in continuous use since, although the original buildings have either been demolished on the east bound platforms or closed off and are no longer in use on the west bound platforms. These are the former booking hall and stair tower and are Grade II listed. There are plans to redevelop the hall in to a community led facility housing the Ted Hughes Poetry Centre and the Alice Longstaff Gallery.

The current station features 2 platforms and was redeveloped in the late 80's early 90's adjacent to the original buildings and platforms. It serves the communities of Mytholmroyd, Luddendenfoot, Midgley and Cragg Vale.

I have been at the station many times armed with a camera and these first pictures were taken on the 14th August 2016. There are a total of 7 pictures that were taken with my Nikon d3300 this time with 5 feature on Flickr in the album below.

All links open in another window and the pictures on Clickasnap do not feature watermarks and are full size on there. Just viewing them there for a minimum of 10 seconds helps support my photography. There are currently over 190 pictures there to view being added to all the time. My profile on Clickasnap can be viewed by clicking here.

Selected images can also be purchased at Photo 4 Me.
