Station


Name and dates

Ayton (1846-1962)

Opened on the North British Railway.


Description

Ayton station was to the south east of Ayton village, about half a mile away.

The main station building was on the Berwick bound platform (which was actually northbound and on the west side due to railway alignment here). The goods yard, with shed, turnplates and loading bank, was on the east side, approached from the south.

The signal box was at the south end, west side of the line. It was replaced in 1943 and closed in 1978.

There was a small oil depot on the station building site after closure to passengers, now cleared. A railway cottage, on the west side at the south end of the station, survives.
