Armathwaite

The Station

The original Armathwaite station building, now a private house, is a medium sized style station built from local red sandstone.

The waiting shelter on the Southbound side of the track is a good example of a stone waiting shelter in traditional Midland style.

Armathwaite signal box, just North of the station, is one of two restored by the Friends of the Settle Carlisle Line.

The Local Area

The village of Armathwaite is nestled in the Eden Valley, down the hill from the Railway Station. Access to the southbound platform is via a fairly steep footpath.

Just south of Armathwaite, right beside the river, there is an unusual feature of five faces carved into the sandstone rock face, images are available at www.visitcumbria.com/rivereden/

Carved from sandstone, another of the Eden Benchmarks carved sculptures can be found in Coombs Wood at Armathwaite.
