Tracked Through Time

The railway station at Hedon was one of many victims of widespread closures across the country in the mid- 1960s, following recommendations by Dr Beeching, but the fact that the old station building and platform is still visible today makes it easier to get an appreciation of what it was like when trains passed through this area, using our archive image from 1900.

The station opened on 27th June 1854, but closed to passengers on 19th October 1964, then finally closed to freight on 3rd June 1968.
