Settle Station on the Historic Settle-Carlisle Line
Modern Northern Rail train stands at this historic old station on the famous section of railway through the Yorkshire Dales. Settle railway station is a Grade II listed station which serves the town of Settle in North Yorkshire, England.
The station was designed by the Midland Railway company architect John Holloway Sanders and was opened with the line on 1 May 1876. It was originally named Settle New to distinguish it from the nearby station on a different route, which was renamed Settle Old at the same time. Settle New was renamed Settle on 1 July 1879, by which time Settle Old had become Giggleswick. Goods facilities were withdrawn from the station in 1970.
