Wooler Railway Station (Wooler)

Wooler Station was the main station on the railway line between Alnwick and Cornhill. The station buildings, built of red sandstone, are extravagant for a country railway. Many of the originally station buildings still stand, though the station yard is now a small industrial estate. There is also a large goods shed and a substantial stationmaster's house. There are two crossing keeper's houses. The railway line was shut in 1965.
