Church Fenton train station serves the little community of Church Fenton and the surrounding villages and lies roughly half way between Leeds and York. The present station was opened in early 20th century by the York and North Midland Railway, through it went through several different sites and changes since it was originally established in 1839. Though the station suffered after the Beeching Axe restructure of the railways and the abolishment of the Castleford service, it still serves today as a busy little passing through point along the Leeds to York Line. CrossCountry and First TransPennine Express trains take many passengers each year between the two northern hubs. There is a direct departure to Leeds every 2 hours which takes 28 minutes and direct departures every 2 hours to York taking between 14 and 20 minutes.
Church Fenton may be tiny, but that doesn’t stop it having several things to do. The Leeds East Airport is within walking distance and is used for helicopter flights, while the beginner-friendly 18-hole Scarthingwell Golf Course is a great place to tee off from if you bring your clubs.
