Description

This was a temporary terminus of the line while construction continued to the west. It was to the south of Charlton Farm and north of the River North Tyne. It consisted of just a temporary platform and hut.

The line was extended west to Riccarton Junction in 1862. It closed in 1958. The trackbed remains intact although the bridge over the line the south east of Charlton Farm has been removed and trackbed infilled and the bridge south of the farm over a minor road has been removed. Bridges were built to allow two lines, but only the westbound was laid.
