Plate 168 is an elevation view from October 1984 showing the station master’s house at Langwathby (/scrca/structure-summary/288320), standing near to the Alston Road, at the entrance to the station.  The style remained the same at all locations, and is detailed in Figure 88 at Cumwhinton.  

As with the stations, the materials used for construction varied, in this case the local red sandstone was used.

Plate 217 shows the Cunwhinton stationmaster’s house from the south-east, built of red sandstone and standing above the station approach.

Figure 88 shows diagrams of a typical stationmaster’s house for the Settle and Carlisle Railway, from an official drawing.
