|Ingleton Branch Line|
The Lancaster and Carlisle Railway built the Ingleton Branch Line from the existing Ingleton Station to Low Gill. By the time the branch was completed in 1861, the L&CR was operated by the London and North Western Railway (L&NWR).
After formal closure to passenger traffic in February 1954, the line was still on occasions used for weekend excursions and to transport pupils to and from local boarding schools (including one in the town here). Goods traffic continued until 1 October 1964. The line was maintained as a possible relief route until April 1967 when the tracks were lifted.
The station building is now in private hands although its building are largely unchanged.
Part of the site is used as a coal yard and the goods shed remains.
