Jervaulx (Newton-le-Willows) Station and its Social History
The station at Newton-le-Willows was called Jervaulx after a nearby village with a famous ruined abbey a few miles away. This was to avoid confusion with another Newton-le-Willows in Lancashire - a much bigger town.
Here are a few photos of Newton-le-Willows and its social history.
We are running an ongoing research programme into the history of the Wensleydale Railway, which runs from Northallerton to Redmire, and we would be delighted to hear from anyone who has a family connection with the railway or can help us piece together its story over the last 150 years. To get in touch, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01677-425805.
