DMU passing through the closed station in 1967

Frizinghall station was opened by the Midland Railway on 1 February 1875. It remained in operation until it was closed on 20 March 1965, a casualty of the Beeching Axe. However the line on which it stood remained open, and 22 years later the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive reopened the station.

The original station had two platforms opposite each other on the north side of Frizinghall Road, but the current station, opened on 7 September 1987, has the two platforms separated: the northbound platform is approximately where it was before, and the southbound is to the south of Frizinghall Road.

Frizinghall signal box is preserved in working order at Damems Junction, on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.

Bring a Pen - There are few rules in the game. But one rule is that you need to sign the logbook. Always pack a pen to make sure you're ready to sign your Geocaching username, the date, and leave a note.
