Probably the only railway station without a railway. Built for the Manchester, Sheffield & Lincolnshire Railway Company, by the company's engineering office. It is dated 1880 and has the initials of the company on the shaped pediment. This building was built to provide rail services in Lincolnshire linked to the Humber Ferry which plied from Hull Corporation Pier to New Holland. The ferry plied this route from 1825 (by the M.S.L.R. from 1848) until superseded by the Humber Bridge in 1981. Now Pier Hall, the building has been converted into flats.
