Stations

There are 11 stops along the route of the Settle to Carlisle Railway.  The stations on the line are a vital link with the outside world for the people living in the surrounding rural areas.  In the past, local produce could be transported with ease to many cities and towns around the country.  The numerous goods sheds on the line were once busy centres, despatching and receiving a wide variety of produce.  These too were all built to a single standard design, varying only in length and building materials.

The line and its stations have been designated a conservation area ensuring its continued use and work continues to regenerate the line and preserve its future.

The stations at Appleby and Settle are manned and the staff are available to answer queries, sell tickets and provide assistance to passengers.  As well as selling tickets to travel on the Settle-Carlisle line, you can buy tickets for travel elsewhere in the country.  Unfortunately, left luggage facilities are not available at these stations.

Car parking charges apply at Appleby and Settle Stations; tickets for the car park are available from the Pay & Display machines.  Parking charges are £2.00 for one day (24 hours) with a five-day ticket available for £8.00.

The opening hours of the stations are:

Appleby
Monday – Friday 09:15 – 18:15
Saturday 07:50 – 17:00
Sunday Closed
