DID YOU KNOW?
As well as its own railway station, Hedon also had a station at its Racecourse.
Hedon Racecourse station opened 122 years ago today on the 24th August 1888 and was used on race days only. Horse racing ceased in 1909. However, the station was reopened almost exactly 60 years later as Hedon Halt station for speedway racing on 14th August 1948 but was last used in October that year.
Apparently, there is still a rail buried in Staithes road level crossing….?
