The footbridge at Althorpe station
The first Althorpe station was opened by the Manchester, Sheffield & Lincolnshire Railway on 1st October 1866. It was on the original line over the River Trent. The line was moved to a new alignment to cross the river by the present King George V bridge and the present station was opened on 21st May 1916.

The station is on the line between Sheffield and Scunthorpe. There are very limited facilities and there is only a layby on the other side of the busy A18. The service is hourly with no trains calling on Sundays. This view looks towards the bridge across the River Trent.
