    Situated on the picturesque Settle-Carlisle railway line, and opened in 1877, Dent is the highest mainline railway station in England.
    In 2006, Robin Hughes purchased the station buildings with a view to restoring them to their former glory. "Ticket to Dent" is the story of this remarkable place.
