Brockholes Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Brockholes railway station serves the village of Brockholes, near Huddersfield in West Yorkshire. It lies 4.25 miles (7 km) away from Huddersfield on the Penistone Line operated by Northern Rail. Trains passing between Brockholes and Shepley pass through a 1-mile (1.6 km) tunnel under Thurstonland. Opened in July 1850 by the Huddersfield & Sheffield Junction Railway (a satellite company of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway), the station was formerly the junction for the Holmfirth Branch Line, which opened on the same day as the main line but closed to passenger trains on 2 November 1959 and to goods traffic in May 1965. Only the former northbound platform is now used, the other (on which the now privately owned main buildings still stand) having gone out of use when the Stocksmoor to Huddersfield section was singled in 1989.
