Ilderton Railway Station (Cheviotside)

The station lies on the former North Eastern Railway line that ran from Alnwick to Cornhill. The station buildings were designed by William Bell and built in red sandstone, although quite fancy for a rural station. The line opened in 1887, but passenger services were never very profitable and the line eventually closed to passengers less than 50 years later, in 1930, and to goods in 1953.
