This tour takes a route along a stretch of the riverbank via Water Lane and the railway station and tells the story of Malton’s 18th and 19th century trade and transport, and life before the motor car. The river and railway in Malton and Norton were once bustling with life and were extremely important, but now both are quiet, and the river in particular is now hidden and almost forgotten. It is difficult to imagine the station was once a very busy place with an imposing railway goods handing building, an outsized noisy cattle dock and extensive coal sidings to serve a wide area. (Tour length – 1 ¼ hours)).

Meeting point
This tour starts at the entrance to Navigation Wharf on Yorkersgate, opposite side to Malton Museum.
