Primary / Secondary References

Figure 40 shows the track layout for Kirkby Stephen station, based upon information from Midland Railway surveys in 1911 and 1912.

Plate 112 is a panoramic view from the east taken in 1970. The station approach is behind the wall which runs from right to left .  The row of houses to the right is called Midland Terrace (SCRCA structure ref 266640).  Those that can be seen beyond the bridge (SCRCA structure ref 266650) are Midland Cottages (SCRCA Structure ref 266660).  The stationmaster occupied a house just off the picture on the right.

Plate 117 is a context view of the station taken from the north in July 1966. Note the weigh office on the station approach and the terrace houses on the left (SCRCA structure ref 266640) and the single storey cottages on the right (SCRCA structure ref 266660) of Bridge 181 (SCRCA structure ref 266650).
