Old Railway Station, Ripon
The old railway station stood a mile north of the city centre and welcomed its first train on May 31st 1848. The station remained open for passenger traffic until 1967 when the line north and south was closed. Now there are calls for a new line to link Ripon with Harrogate. The station buildings were converted for residential use.
Photographs of the station before and after closure can be seen at LinkExternal link together with the history of the railway that used to run through here.
