Hunmanby Railway Station 2006 to 2020
In the winter of 2005/2006 Hunmanby in Bloom started work with support from the rail industry to improve the environment for passengers using the village station. 

Hunmanby Railway Station has been developed by volunteers over the last 15 years. Supported by local traders, the rail industry, local councillors and officers, the probation service (Community Payback) and our Member of Parliament.

Over the years the station has been transformed, with a mixture of planting, most of the planting at the station is sustainable planting, locally grown. Some annual planting is used for the summer planting of the tubs and hanging baskets.

Welcome from the Friends of Hunmanby Railway Station

Hunmanby is a lively, attractive  village, two miles from the North Sea Coast, and a gateway to the Yorkshire Wolds. It is a historic village with a Heritage Trail and Flower Trail, and for those who fancy going further afield, it  is perfectly placed for exploring the coast and the countryside.   

The Station: This is an unmanned station, but travellers can find a ticket machine and plenty of information there. The rail industry produces a very useful Onward Travel Map, showing the station in relation to the village and its facilities, available here:

The Village: 

Hunmanby is a working village of about three thousand people and has a thriving Industrial Estate. It also has holiday accommodation to suit most tastes: self catering, traditional bed & breakfast, and more quirky and unusual places  like the converted Old Station Waiting Rooms, The Folly and Posh Pods, and at Dale Farm, on the Bartindale Road.. Though the shops and most amenities are about a 10-minute walk from the station, most of the visitor accommodation is much closer. Ideal for a short break without the car!  The village has good facilities: a popular village school, two churches, a community centre, doctor’s surgery, dentist, optician, chemist and Post Office. Village shops include the Co-op, Deli, greengrocers, butcher’s, Ellison's Hardware Store, cafes, newsagent, hair dressers and beauty parlours. There are four public houses: The White Swan and The Cottage in the village centre, The Horse Shoe Inn on Stonegate, and the Piebald (Former Railway Tavern) on Sands Lane. All offer home cooked food and a choice of real ales. In addition the Hunmanby Playing Fields Association on Sands Lane has a members club house and Wrangham House Hotel.  We hope you’ll come to see our village, and  enjoy it  as much as we do.
