Morpeth railway station
Morpeth railway station is a nowadays minor train station on the East Coast Main Line in Northumberland, northern England, serving the county town of Morpeth. It was desgned by Benjamin Green, in the Scottish Baronial style, and built in the 1847 for the Newcastle and Berwick Railway and retains its original station buildings.
Morpeth station is irregularly served by GNER intercity trains running to London, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen. Northern Rail operates regular local services between Newcastle and Morpeth, some of which continue to Chathill , north of Alnwick.
A severe curve in the line of the railway immediately to the south of the station has been the site of four rail crashes, three of them fatal.
