Grinkle railway station was on the Whitby Redcar and Middlesbrough Union Railway. It was opened on 3 December 1883,[1] and served the village of Easington in North Yorkshire, England. It was originally named Easington, but was renamed Grinkle on 1 April 1904[2] after Grinkle Park, to avoid confusion with another Easington railway station on the North Eastern Railway's network. It closed on 11 September 1939.[3]
