Brough train station serves the small town of Brough in East Yorkshire. The station was originally built in 1840 by the Hull and Selby Railway and was much larger than the one which stands today, having once been served by four tracks, rather than just two. For a station of its size, Brough offers fantastic links to the rest of Yorkshire, with regular services heading to Hull, Bridlington and Scarborough from platform 1 and York, Doncaster and Sheffield from platform 2, with trains to the latter taking just over an hour.
The station at Brough, which backs on the Humber River, lies just south of the main village with its range of shops, takeaways, banks and pubs, as well as two large supermarkets.
One of the town's pubs - The Ferry Inn - is celebrated as the location of famous highwayman Dick Turpin's arrest. The town features many a nod to Turpin, who famously resided in Brough until his capture and execution in 1739.
