Station


Name and dates

Fourstones (1836-1967)

Opened on the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station to the south east of the village of Fourstones. The main station building was on the eastbound platform with awaiting room on the westbound.

To the east of the station, and north of the line, were the exchange sidings for the Fourstones Colliery and Lime Works, which were connected by an inclined plane waggonway running north to Fourstones Quarries and Prudhamstone Quarries.

Nothing now remains of the station except a railway cottage. The Railway Inn (closed 2015) is on the former station approach from village.
