Facilities when openEdit
The station itself had three platforms: up, towards York, the west platform; down toward Beverley, the east platform, and a bay off the west side. The Station House building is on the down (East) side, consisting of two waiting rooms, and the stationmaster's office. Also on the site was a two-road goods shed, which backed onto the down platform. The large yard between the goods shed and the station building served as a holding area for goods received or pending dispatch. Stamford Bridge had a relatively short throat by NER standards; the distance between the end of the platforms and the viaduct is only about 600 yards (550 m).
The station building now runs as a private members only club for residents of the village, with a bar, function room and lounge. Local groups also use the Station House as a meeting venue. The goods shed currently serves as a sports hall, after the addition of changing rooms on the south side of the building. The east yard is now a car park, the West bay platform is the village play park.
