And behind the former station building.

The station and crossing was given the name Weaverthorpe in 1882 even through the village lies 8km south.

Built on the York and North Midland Railway in 1845 it was originally called Sherburn but was renamed in 1874 to Wykeham because there was with three other stations also named Sherburn. Once Wykeham acquired its own station in 1882 it was renamed as Weaverthorpe.
