Parkhouse Halt railway station was built for the nearby RAF Kingstown (later RAF Carlisle) from 1941 to 1969 on the Waverley Line.

History[edit]

The station opened on 7 July 1941 by the LNER to serve the workers at the nearby RAF Kingstown depot.[1] The halt was not available to members of the public. Due to this, it was not believed to have nameboards installed. The halt closed on 6 January 1969 along with the line.[2]
