Snaith railway station lies on the edge of the small town of Snaith in Yorkshire some 25 miles east of Leeds city centre. It was opened in the mid-19th century by the then Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway along with the line which carried coal to the Yorkshire’s port towns. Up until the mid ‘80s, the station had two platforms, but this was reduced to single platform after the closure of one of the lines. Today, the station and the trains that pass through along the Pontefract Line are managed by Northern. The station is unstaffed and there are no facilities for purchasing tickets, so they must either be bought online prior to travel or on board the train with the conductor. Strangely, Snaith has several empty ‘ghost’ trains that stop at its platform and whose only job is to stop the closure of the station. There’s one direct departure a day to Goole in 14 minutes and two services a day direct to Leeds to 55 minutes.

Snaith is small, but you’ll find several things to do and see. The beautiful St Laurence Priory and Snaith Methodist Church are both well worth a visit, as is the Old Mill Brewery.
