Almost next to the station is Beggar's Bridge, the famous packhorse bridge built by Thomas Ferries in 1619. An ancient pannierway, made of stone trods, passes up through Arncliffe Woods from here.
The small settlement of Carr End is next to the station. The main village of Glaisdale is a mile away. Like Grosmont, in the nineteenth century Glaisdale was an ironstone-mining village, similarly recognisable by its terraces of slate-roofed cottages.
