The impressive station building at Whitby West Cliff in 2008. View is south west from Station Avenue, with the station masters house on the right. The station stood at the northern end of Larpool viaduct which carried the Scarborough - Middlesbrough line across the Esk passing above the direct west to east route. Following closure of the line to the north, trains arriving at West Cliff from Scarborough bound for Whitby Town were involved in a long and steep reversal to reach Whitby Town terminus. West Cliff station was closed in June 1961.
