A picturesque Victorian station.
Pegton-born and bred engineer, Willard Whitlock, is memorialised in the name of this branch line station, and officially also in the name of the street which leads to it, Whitlock Way, usually known as as Jacquet Walk.
Although overshadowed by the far busier Norton Square Railway Station, which was the main junction for eastbound trains and trains arriving in Malton from the eastern counties, this station remains an icon of Malton's glorious Steam Age years.
Willard Whitlock, in partnership with William Whitehead and Walfrid Warburton, all of whom were friends since their schooldays at Leaman Grove School, developed the efficient and reliable Walloper locomotive. A century later their company was to become the multinational engineering conglomerate 3W.
For Future Help, recording a date to the building status is recommended.
