Dent railway station lies in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and serves the little communities of Dent and the surrounding villages. It is one of the finest examples of rural British train stations with its Grade II listed original buildings still intact, though they were sold off to private investors some time ago and transformed into holiday lets. During the ‘70s, the station buildings were rented to schools who brought pupils to the property and used it as a base for outdoor adventures in the Yorkshire Dales. It’s also England’s highest operational railway station at 350 metres above sea level. The two platforms have original stone waiting shelters, and timetable posters, but little else in the way of facilities. There are no ticket machines or office, so travellers are required to book online in advance or buy them on board with the train conductor. Today, the trains pass through on the Settle-Carlisle Line and are operated, along with the station, by Northern. There are several trains a day to Leeds in 1 hour 29 minutes and Carlisle in 1 hour 16 minutes.

When you step off at Dent, you’ll be ideally placed for hiking adventures in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Try the footpaths that wind up to nearby Great Knoutberry Hill which offer extraordinary views across the stark moorland scenery from its summit.
