Grosmont ( GROH-mont; archaically spelt Growmond) is a village and civil parish situated in Eskdale in the North York Moors National Park, within the boundaries of the Scarborough district of the county of North Yorkshire, England.
Grosmont Priory was established in the 12th century and closed during the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century. The village was established in the 1830s when the Whitby to Pickering Railway was built, and grew as a result of industrial iron ore extraction, and in the 1860s the development of an ironworks led to further growth. Up to at least the 1850s the village was known as Tunnel.

Great little village in the Yorkshire Moors. Very picturesque and quaint, it's like going back in time. It's a 'must see' if in the area. There's also an engine workshop next to the line where you can see volunteers working to restore old steam trains, very interesting.

An attractive historic railway station on the scenic Esk Valley Line. Steam locomotives pass through most days.

A lovely station with plenty going on. There's always something to see while waiting for your train. Plenty of helpful staff who can usually either answer any questions you may have, or point you in the direction of someone who can!

Great place to hang out and watch trains, the walk to the engine sheds is a worthwhile trip and the longer walk towards Goathland is brilliant.
