Little Mill Station Station Gallery 2: c1964 - 2014


Looking north towards the site of Little Mill station c1964. The siding in the foreground formerly gave access to the limestone quarries and lime kilns. The goods dock is on the right and the elevated siding leads to the coal cells (coal depot) with the coal weigh house beside it. The NER signal box has a nameplate, possibly of NER vintage, repainted in BR(NE) tangerine. The passenger station was beyond the level crossing, but it appears to have been removed.

Looking south from the level crossing at Little Mill in April 1971. The NER signal box is still in use but would close in 1978. Barriers had replaced crossing gates here in 1967. The former goods yard can be seen to the left, with tracks lifted and stacked, and a loading gauge is still in place. Beyond the signal box it appears that the sidings associated with the limestone quarries and lime kilns
have recently been lifted.

In September 1978 the goods office on the up side of the main line, immediately south of the level crossing, is still in place; a robust structure of rock-faced sandstone with smoothed quoins.

Looking north from Little Mill level crossing in September 1978. Nothing remains of the platforms. The main building was formerly on the extreme left and the booking office and waiting room block on the right; a portion of its back wall is concealed by the bushes (far right).

The former whinstone quarry loading platform at Little Mill, on the up side of the line south of the level crossing is seen in May 2009. Little Mill Junction is the location of crossovers between the up and down lines; both lines are signalled for bi-directional running.

Little Mill signal box closed in April 1978 but the stone base has been retained as a relay room. This view, looking south-west, dates from May 2009.

The site of the down platform at Little Mill station is seen in May 2009, looking north-west from the level crossing. It is hard to believe that a fine station building once stood here, close to the modern warning sign, and that Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were among the passengers who used the station.

Looking north-east from the level crossing at Little Mill in May 2009 towards the site of the station’s up platform. The booking office, together with waiting facilities and toilets, were on this platform.

In this dramatic photo from January 2013 a Class 91 express hurtles northward over the crossovers at Little Mill Junction, about 100yd south of the former Little Mill station
