The halt was the first extension on the railway. The location is called Holywell. The halt was constructed so passengers could view the Craven Fault geological site.
The area is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and can also be viewed from the railway line itself. The extension was built largely by volunteers and other organisations who helped out at different stages of the project.
The station was opened in 1987 by the Marquess of Hartington. Holywell Halt had never previously existed when the line formed part of the national rail network.
