Nestling in one of the most beautiful parts of Yorkshire, Bolton Abbey Station has been lovingly re-created by our volunteers in the original Midland Railway style of the 1800’s.  Platform 1 and the main station building were re-opened in 1998, and since then we have added an original Midland Railway signal box (in the location of the original) at the east end of platform 1.  From platform 1, you can see the next phase of our development with platform 2 and 3 being re-instated.  Our plans include additional station buildings and a footbridge to connect the platforms.

Bolton Abbey Priory is 1.5 miles away.  We have a leaflet available in the stations describing the route and a website page here which includes a map.
