Settle Junction Station

Settle Junction Station opened for passenger traffic on  October  2nd, 1876  and  closed just thirteen  months  later on November 1st, 1877.

The main station building was of the 'small' or 'type 3' standard Crossley design. Following the closure of the station to passenger traffic, it was used as a gangers’ hut for many decades before being demolished in the late 1960s.

All that remains of the station buildings today is a short length of dressed stone wall forming part of the railway boundary with the adjacent A65 road.

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!).
