Bolon Abbey Station - DNT00196


An intermediate station on the MR’s Ilkley – Skipton line it opened with the line in 1888. The great popularity of Bolton Abbey made it a very busy station particularly in summer with excursion trains of several railway companies; it was also the terminus for the royal train during the reign of George V when he came to Bolton Hall to stay with the Duke of Devonshire for shooting. The station closed with the line in 1965 and the buildings fell into a state of dereliction

The site has subsequently been acquired by the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway - www.embsayboltonabbeyrailway.org.uk
