Skipton was the last station of 2014's holiday, and served to link that week's exploring to the week in West Yorkshire. The front of the station from the car park:

At the other end of the subway it's mostly shiny and white and modern, but the padlocked wooden door tells another story:

There was time to walk up to the road bridge over the line to the station's west, so I did so to get this shot of the station from the bridge:

Also from the bridge, we can see a third exit from the subway on the right and a disused platform:
