Goswick railway station served the hamlet of Goswick, Northumberland, England from 1870 to 1964 on the East Coast Main Line.

History

The station was believed to have opened in November 1870 because that is when it first appeared in the Bradshaw timetable, although it appeared as Wind Hill Mill. The stations name was changed to Goswick on 1 January 1898. The station was situated at a level crossing of an unnamed minor lane 2 miles east from the A1. It was close to the Berwick-upon-Tweed Golf Club. A goods siding was northwest of the down platform. However, a mission room was established which joined the goods siding. This was established at the end of the nineteenth century, and this eventually became Wind Mill Hill Presbyterian Church. The station closed to passengers on 5 May 1941 due to the Second World War and reopened on 7 October 1946 but Sunday services were not restored. An accident occurred on 26 October 1947 near the station when the Flying Scotsman derailed due to the driver failing to stop at the signals and the guard not reading the notice of the diversions at Haymarket TMD. The station house was used as a triage for the injured and the church at the goods sidings was used as a mortuary for the 28 people that were killed. The station closed on 15 September 1958 and completely on 10 August 1964 after the last goods service on 10 April 1964 had stopped.[1]
