Ingrow Station

Ingrow is a suburb of Keighley, West Yorkshire, England that lies on the River Worth.[1] The name Ingrow comes from Old Scandinavian which means 'corner of land in the meadow.'[2] The suburb is located on the A629 road and is 0.93 miles (1.5 km) south west of Keighley town centre.[3]

It is the location of the Ingrow Railway Centre with two railway museums: the Museum of Rail Travel owned by Vintage Carriages Trust, and Ingrow Loco, owned by the Bahamas Locomotive Society; the museums (off South Street A629) are adjacent to Ingrow (West) railway station on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, a 5-mile (8 km) long heritage railway which serves Keighley, Ingrow, Damems, Oakworth, Haworth and Oxenhope.[4]

Between 1884 and 1955 Ingrow had a second railway station (Ingrow East), adjacent to, but 40 feet (12 m) higher than the current railway station; this station was on the Great Northern route between Keighley, Halifax and Bradford Exchange.[5]

The area is served by the grade II listed parish church of St John the Evangelist,[6] which was built in 1843 to serve the parish of Ingrow with Hainworth.[7]
