Redmire is a village and civil parish in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. It is about 4 miles west of Leyburn in Wensleydale at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

It is the terminus of the Wensleydale Railway.[2] Recently the Ministry of Defence trialled the use of trains to transport armoured vehicles from bases in the south to the Catterick military area, using Redmire railway station as its terminus.[3]
