Route of the Esk Valley Railway


Nunthorpe is an outer suburb of Middlesbrough. The railway station is at its hub. The original village of Nunthorpe, about a mile south of here, grew up around Nunthorpe Hall, which dates from the 1620s, though that house was largely rebuilt in the 19th century. This stretch of the railway line forms the boundary between the boroughs of Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland.

Whilst on the train between Nunthorpe and Great Ayton, look out for the striking views of Roseberry Topping.

There are now 18 services Monday to Saturday between Middlesbrough and Nunthorpe and 10 each way on Sundays, all year round.
Six services Monday to Saturday, and four on Sundays continue beyond Nunthorpe along the Esk Valley to Whitby. There are also two extended services that go beyond Nunthorpe; the 13:15 calls at Great Ayton and Battersby ONLY as does the 17:13.

Come and explore the Land of Iron Walks in the North York Moors

There are ten circular walks from stations with close connections to the Ironstone mining era of the late 1800s. Try the train down the Esk Valley and from Great Ayton to Grosmont, each station tells a story and shows a map with a circular walk. The information boards were funded by the North York Moors National Park's Land of Iron Team and you can find out more about this amazing project here. There is also a permanent exhibition at the Moors Centre, Danby, which is a 20 minute walk from the station.
