Help us continue to develop this amazing place

There are lots of ways you can support The Station, whether that’s attending one of our events, making a donation for a preloved book from our Lost and Found Book Stall, or enjoying a coffee and a cake. All the money that is generated goes back into maintaining and improving this amazing place , as well as supporting the continued work of the Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust (RBPT), the locally based heritage restoration charity that owns and operates The Station.

There are other ways to get involved and support The Station too!


We are accepting donations of unwanted books for our Lost and Found Book Stall. We are always grateful for book donations, especially good quality/condition children’s books, biographies, novels, and cookery books. If you have any books you would like to donate, our friendly team of volunteers will be happy to receive them.
