Regency Place site at West Tanfield

Developers have started work to transform the site of a historic former North Yorkshire railway station into a £20m-plus collection of family homes.

Wetherby-based Berkeley DeVeer is breathing new life into the three-acre brownfield site at West Tanfield, six miles north of Ripon.

Having played a key role in World War Two D-Day preparations it has stood idle since being used most recently for light industrial purposes.

The 42 hand-crafted, eco-friendly properties will include 8 affordable homes –  on land off Mowbray Terrace.

The development - known as Regency Place - was once home to Tanfield station, which opened in 1875, before closing to passengers in 1931, and shutting down completely in 1963.

The station - which sat on the single branch line between Masham, Melmerby and Ripon - drew around 8,000 passenger journeys a year, as well running a daily livestock train.
