Knaresborough Station :: Shared Description

Knaresborough station serves the town of Knaresborough in North Yorkshire. It is located on the Harrogate Line 16.75 miles west of York and is operated by Northern Rail who provide all passenger train services.
The East and West Yorkshire Junction Railway (E&WJR) was opened from York (Poppleton Junction) to a temporary terminus known as Hay Park Lane, Knaresborough on 30 October 1848. The E&WYJR was absorbed by the York and North Midland Railway on 1 July 1851. Three weeks later, with the completion of the stone viaduct crossing the River Nidd at Knaresborough on 21 July 1851, the temporary station was closed and a new Knaresborough station opened on the current site just beyond the stone viaduct.
In 1865 the North Eastern Railway replaced the 1851 station with a design by Thomas Prosser. The station was rebuilt c.1890. The 1851 Water tower is still in place.
The station is Grade II listed. LinkExternal link
