Structure / Site Summary for 256650

Hawes Junction

Hawes Junction is the point where the former branch line to Hawes diverges from the main Settle-Carlisle line. The western section of the Hawes Branch (between Garsdale and Redmire) closed to all traffic on April 27th, 1964 and the track in that section was lifted the following year. Trains to / from the Hawes branch used the platform face to the right of the island platform (see right-centre in the large image below). The former trackbed is now used as a driveway and parking area. The official 'zero point' for the Hawes branch was located beside (to the right of) the booking office (i.e. the nearest building visible on the island platform - see Structure 256660). However, the trailing junction from the main Settle-Carlisle line was behind and to the left of the photographer's position. The map-marker for the junction has been placed at the approximate location of the zero milepost.

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!).
