Settle railway station is a Grade II listed station which serves the town of Settle in North Yorkshire, England. It is operated by Northern who provide all passenger train services. It is situated at the southern end of the Settle-Carlisle Line 41+1/2mi north of. Settle is also served by Giggleswick railway station under one mile to the west of the town.History and facilitiesThe station was designed by the Midland Railway company architect John Holloway Sanders. The station was opened with the line on 1 May 1876 and was originally named Settle New to distinguish it from the nearby station on a different route, which was renamed at the same time. Settle New was renamed Settle on 1 July 1879, by which time Settle Old had become Giggleswick. Goods facilities were withdrawn from the station in 1970.The railway station is located very close to the town centre and is staffed on a part-time basis. There is a range of facilities available (including waiting room, toilets and a souvenir shop) in the main buildings on the southbound platform. There is a period stone-built waiting room located on the northbound platform.The platforms are linked by an ex-North British Railway footbridge that was formerly located at station in East Lothian until electrification of the ECML made it redundant. It was then dismantled and re-erected here in 1993 to allow the old barrow crossing at the north end of the station to be taken out of regular use (though the crossing is still available for wheelchair users when the station is staffed).
