History

The original station was opened on 1 October 1888 by the Midland Railway on the Skipton to Ilkley Line, later modernised by the London, Midland and Scottish railway (LMS), and eventually closed as part of the Beeching Axe on 22 March 1965. The station was re-opened by the Yorkshire Dales Railway (Embsay Railway) on 22 February 1981. It was brought back to its former glory in the days of the LMS.

In December 2004, the TV soap Emmerdale used the station for the location of Hotten station.

On 6 February 2008, a new signal box arrived, an original from 1892 (Midland Railway). The signal box is to add character to the station.
