This appears to correspond to the edge of the roof on a modern school building.
A quick virtual visit with Google Maps doesn't spot it.

Well spotted. I've created a new T:UK entry at Princes Risborough. Though I must say their dating of news items is a bit sketchy; I looked through the list early October before visiting the Shap, Catterick & Richmond stations and the new entry wasn't listed at the time.

Agreed. Although dated 2017-08-09 the news item has only been added within the last week or two.
But at least we now know about this station :) Thanks for adding it to TP:UK
