Description:
Scorton railway station (North Yorkshire) was a railway station in what is now the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. The village of Scorton is situated around half a mile from the site of the station.

History

The station was once part of the Eryholme-Richmond branch line, built by the York and Newcastle Railway in 1846. Like most of the infrastructure of the line, Scorton station was built in the Tudor Style.

The Richmond branch line survived the Beeching cuts of the early 1960s, but closed only a few years later in 1969. At this time Scorton station was also abandoned and sold.

Present

The station is now a residential property, the waiting room now makes a remarkable lounge and the platforms are now nothing more than garden features.

Much of the trackbed to the west of Scorton station has been destroyed by sand and gravel quarrying.

St Cuthbert's Inn, the pub that was situated across the road from the station survived for many years after the closure of the line but a combination of the drink driving laws and the decline of the rural economy in the UK finally took their toll in 2001 and saw the closure of the business.
