This station was opened by the Clarence Railway on 20th June 1838 and closed to passengers on 1st April 1902. Besides the infrequent service it offered to Stockton, via Ferryhill, does anyone have any information on any other passenger services that would have called at this station.

I have just received some historical information by PM in the form of a timetable of the services noted above.

It would appear that the 1829 Clarence Railway Act gave the Clarence Railway powers to construct branches to Wingate for the City of Durham, Sherburn and Byers Green. Byers Green of these was the only one to have reached its intended destination. The City of Durham branch was only opened as far as Thrislington and the Sherburn branch was only opened as far as Coxhoe.

I could've sworn this site had something about Coxhoe station, and the level crossing on it. Can't find it now for some reason. Soz!

There's also the Disused Stations site, which does have a page about Coxhoe.

The line to Coxhoe actually went a little further than Coxhoe (WH) station. It served the original Bowburn colliery workings until the new shaft was sunk on what is now the Bowburn (South) Industrial Estate,and also the quarry workings over there too. There's a photo in a book I've read that shows a Q6 and a rake of brake vans doing an enthusiasts' 'last gasp' tour, just about to cross the road at Coxhoe on its way back to Ferryhill. You can still walk that route, by the way, from Coxhoe to Ferryhill, then return to Coxhoe Bridge on the Hartlepool route, going through West Cornforth (aka 'Doggy').

The page does work

HERE

although I did initially get a 'domain for sale?' page when I copy/pasted the original post address. I then went to www.bowburnhistory.co.uk , then 'Transport and outings' in the LHS menu, then the 'Leamside line' link, if my link fails :)
