West of Aysgarth Railway Station beside the now disused Wensleydale Railway line stood a couple of railway workers’ cottages and a large coal yard. The cottages were built in the North Eastern Railway Company’s cottage orné style, a rustic version of their Renaissance villa style popular in late Victorian England. The cottages have been converted into a National Park Centre by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and the coal yard is now a large car park for visitors to the centre and Aysgarth Falls.
