Description

This was a two platform station with the main building on the southbound platform and a signal box. It was to the west of Scorton itself.

It replaced the original extremely short lived Scorton [Lancashire] [1st] about half a mile to the south in August 1840. The second station was slightly closer to the village than its predecessor.

Nothing now remains of this station, except the name Station Lane for the road which passes under the line to the north of the site and a dirt access road which once approached the northbound platform.

[Wyre Viaduct]] is not far north of the former station.
