Horton station is the ‘small’ type of Settle Carlisle Midland Railway station building.

 

In the 1950s and 60s under stationmaster Taylor, Horton won the Best Kept Station award for seventeen consecutive years. Its beautifully kept gardens are now maintained by a volunteer gardener.

 

The station building is now leased by The Settle and Carlisle Railway Trust who have restored and refurbished it.
