Notes / additional information

The images in this 'snippet' (note) were taken (with prior permission) on the 8th May 2012 from the northwest end of the 'Up' platform at Hellfield Station. They provide a 360 degree record of the status (demolished vs. extant) of the railway-related structures at the NW end of the station on that date.

The main station building and platform canopy visible in images 'Down-1' and 'Up-5' lie to the southeast of the camera position. The railway tracks visible in these images are the 'Up' loop and the 'Up main line - the latter leading to Hellifield Junction.

The railway tracks visible in images 'Down-5' and 'Up-1' lie to the northwest of the camera position and they lead towards Settle Junction.

Structure Location Map

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
