Strensall railway station was a minor railway station serving the village of Strensall in North Yorkshire, England.

History[edit]

It is situated on the York to Scarborough Line and was opened on 5 July 1845 by the York and North Midland Railway. It closed on 22 September 1930. The station building is grade II listed.[1]

Reopening[edit]

There has been talk of reopening a station at Strensall as well as neighbouring Haxby for a number of years. These reopenings were part of the 2001 local transport plan. But in 2010 even the more modest plan to reopen only Haxby was postponed pending further funding decisions.[2]
