History and description[edit]

Beverley station interior (2001)

Beverley station was opened in October 1846 by the York and North Midland Railway leased Bridlngton branch of the Hull and Selby railway. The original station was designed by G.T. Andrews.[1]

Beverley gained junction status nineteen years later in 1865 when the North Eastern Railway completed the Market Weighton to Beverley section of the York to Beverley Line.

The station was also planned to be the junction for the North Holderness Light Railway.[when?]

The York to Beverley Line closed as a result of the Beeching Axe on 29 November 1965.[2] The station received listed building status in 1985.[1]

Services[edit]

The station has a two train per hour service to Hull and Bridlington, with nine trains a day extended to Scarborough on weekdays. At peak times, a number of extra trains from Hull terminate/start here. Some services to Hull continue to Doncaster and Sheffield or York. Trains run hourly in each direction on Sundays, with two-hourly extensions northbound to Scarborough all year since the December 2009 timetable change (this service level previously only ran in summer).
