The former goods shed at Holme Hale station is viewed from the public road in August 1987. The doors in the centre of the shed were used by road vehicles. The small building on the left is probably the goods office.

In this 1987 view of Holme Hale station’s goods shed a building blocks the route along which the rails into the shed once ran. The coal heaps seen in the 1982 photo have gone; the coal merchant may have left when the land owner put the whole station site on the market.

The former stationmaster’s house at Holme Hale in July 2017 is a large private dwelling. The gate resembles the original crossing gates but is probably more recent.

In July 2017 the signal box remains on the platform at the former Holme Hale station; the nameboard has been replaced although it is not know if it is original or a reproduction. The original stonework of the platform shed can be seen in the darker shade of masonry.
