Abandoning a 200km ride in the Dales 100km through had its consequences, chief among which was that we had to get back to the right side of the Pennines. But the staff at Northallerton station showed us the way to go home, and I snapped a few photos with a spare camera.

The approach to the station:

A modern ticket office building sits at ground level below the raised tracks:

Entrance to platform 2 is via this subway under the tracks:

But we wanted platform 1, which has a ramped entrance from ground level:

Little traces of older structures still exist, like these railings embedded in stonework:
