Thurnscoe: site of former Hickleton & Thurnscoe (H&B) station
View eastward from the new (16/5/88) Thurnscoe station on the ex-Midland & NE (Swinton & Knottingley) Joint line, the main Sheffield - York line. Parallel to this had run the Hull & South Yorkshire Extension Railway from Wrangbrook Junction on the Hull & Barnsley Railway to Wath, with a station here named Hickleton & Thurnscoe: the station and line lasted for passengers until 6/4/29, for goods until 31/5/54. (The new Thurnscoe station is wrongly quoted in its Wikipedia article as 'built on the site of a former Bolton-on-Dearne (for Goldthorpe) station', but this is wrong: Bolton-on-Dearne station is, and always has been, about two miles south of here on the S&K line).
