This village of two halves
was largely created to house the men who
worked on the Whitby to Pickering railway in
the mid-19th century. Although it was closed
in the 1960s during the Beeching era, a band
of enthusiasts revived it and transformed it
into the private, steam-powered North York
The line still cuts through the village and the station has been given some lovely historical touches. There is also access to the engine sheds. The line is connected here to the Esk Valley railway which takes passengers to Whitby and Middlesbrough.
