Name and dates

How Mill (1838-1959)

Opened on the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station and is now just a level crossing. The platforms were staggered with the westbound on the west side of the level crossing and eastbound to the east. Opposite the westbound siding was a looped siding, serving a loading bank. The eastbound platform was narrow, with a siding to its north, approached from the east. The signal box was on the south side of the line, east of the crossing.

A railway building survives on the west side of the crossing, north of the line, now a house. The yard to the east, without sidings, is a permanent way depot.
