Thank you everyone - looks like 8 of the 10 have been corrected, there's one it's suggested was right in the first place and there's only one left without comment so far ...

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

Yes, that's correct.   This is the station where all trains headed out to Whitby via the Esk Valley line have to reverse.    It felt like the back of beyond and not a significant operating point!

The Rosedale Railway ran from the station at Battersby to the iron ore mines in Rosedale from 1861 to 1929. Much of the track can be walked.
