SCRCA site 234491: Settle Junction Station

SCRCA Location Introduction

Settle Junction Station opened for passenger traffic on October 2nd, 1876 and closed just thirteen months later on November 1st, 1877.

The main station building was of the 'small' or 'type 3' standard Crossley design. Following the closure of the station to passenger traffic, it was used as a gangers’ hut for many decades before being demolished in the late 1960s.

All that remains of the station buildings today is a short length of dressed stone wall forming part of the railway boundary with the adjacent A65 road.
