Armathwaite Signal Box

The signal box at Armathwaite station was brought into service on July 16th 1899. It is of timber construction, measures 16’6 x 11’6 and houses a 16 lever tumbler frame. It was decommissioned and retired from service on January 15th 1983.
 
The Friends of the Settle Carlisle Line completed a full restoration of the box in 1992 making it an excellent example of its kind. Following a recent period of maintenance, the box is now open to the public and ready for visitors. A number of original 19th century Midland Railway block instruments have been installed, along with other artefacts, books and information. Guide books for the journey along the line are also available to purchase from the box.
