Cononley railway station serves the village of Cononley in North Yorkshire, England. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by Northern Rail.

It was originally opened in late 1847, at a cost of £900, by the Leeds and Bradford Extension Railway.[1] It was closed on 22 March 1965.[2] It was reopened in 1988 at a cost of £34,000, which was borne by the county, district and local parish councils, and the Rural Development Commission.

The station has two platforms and is situated right beside Cononley main street.

Services[edit]

During Monday to Saturday daytime, there is a half-hourly service from Skipton to both Leeds and Bradford Forster Square and four trains an hour towards Skipton. In the evenings there is a half-hourly service to Leeds, an hourly service to Bradford Forster Square and three trains per hour to Skipton.[3]

On Sundays there is an hourly service to Leeds and a two-hourly service to Bradford with one or two trains per hour to Skipton.

These services are normally provided by Class 333 or Class 322 EMUs.
