    saw this on the forgotten relics web site and as it was close to the combine havester grave yard i thought why not! history taken from here:- http://www.forgottenrelics.co.uk/stations/gallery/whittingham.html

    Opened on 5th September 1887, this extensive station was rather distant from the village after which it is named, being more than a mile to its east. Construction of the route received considerable support from Lord Ravensworth, a local landowner, and the station was built very much for his benefit.

    As well as its large main building, the site boasted a signal box and water column to the east as well as five sidings to the west serving a goods shed, goods platform, loading bay and coal drops - the latter also having a weighbridge.

    The passenger service was short-lived, ending on 22nd September 1930, but the goods facilities continued to welcome traffic until March 1953. Although the decorative cast iron canopy has long since lost its glass, the platform building adorned by it is now Grade II listed and awaiting restoration as a dwelling.
