Built of iron and glass, the station canopy is over 130 years old and was last refurbished in the mid 1990s. Network Rail has now completed a £550,000 project to repair and redecorate the station canopies structural steelwork and replace all the glazing panels.

Network Rail area director Martin Frobisher commented: “This is a beautiful old building and the investment we have made to sympathetically refurbish it will safeguard its future and allow passengers to continue to enjoy the station for decades to come.”

The station is managed by Northern Rail, Richard Allan, Area Director for Northern Rail, said: “Investment of this kind into our rural stations is extremely welcome and Hellifield will hugely benefit from this refurbishment. Our customers are now greeted by a brighter and more welcoming environment and be able to enjoy the unique surroundings this historic station has to offer.”

Ruth Evans from the Friends of Hellifield Station added: “It is great to see the work carried out to such a high standard on this magnificent station. It is well worth a visit by using the famous Leeds-Settle-Carlisle line. The Tea Rooms on the station are open most days where you can enjoy a ‘Fireman’s Breakfast’. We would like to thank to Network Rail for their investment in this station.”
