Settle Railway Station.

Settle Railway Station serves the North Yorkshire market town at the southern point of the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway through Northern England. The station is the 2nd station to carry the name, the first being the current Giggleswick stop which opened in 1849, it is approx. a mile to the west of Settle centre. When Settle station opened on the 1st May 1876, It was called Settle New Station and the original one became Settle old before becoming Giggleswick in November 1877, at the same time Settle New removed the new from the title.

The station is staffed part time and has a limited number of facilities. That platforms were connected by a barrow crossing at the northern end of the platforms, this was replaced by a bridge in 1993. The bridge was taken from Drem Railway Station, East Lothian when the line had been upgraded to electric making the bridge defunct. It looks like the bridge has always been there in my opinion. The old barrow crossing is still used by station staff and wheelchair users. The station gained Grade II listed status in March 1984 and the station signal box which closed also in 1984 has been restored by the Friends of the Settle - Carlisle line.

The pictures were taken on the 23rd August 2016 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. There are a total of 18 pictures available to view, with 12 that can be seen here and on Flickr and an additional 6 exclusive to Clickasnap. There is a link to the album below.
