Its not often that you can see a Signal Boy well preserved as this one. Its a good example of Britain's railway history. Well worth a visit. Shame the acual box was closed when we visited

It’s very interesting visiting the station and the signal box is part of a very picturesque scene. It’s wonderful to see the whole place beautifully restored which is a credit to the volunteers.

The signal box, open to the public on Saturdays with helpful Friends of the Settle-Carlisle on hand, is just part of a magnificently preserved and beautifully maintained station.

Settle station box is open to public on some days and allows a hands on experience with some enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers. If you like trains or history of transport, well worth a detour if you are in the area.
