Bentley (South Yorks) Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Bentley railway station is a railway station that serves Bentley, South Yorkshire, England. It lies on the Wakefield Line and is managed by Northern Rail, who also provide all the passenger trains serving it. It was opened on 27 April 1992 by British Rail with financial assistance from the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive. An earlier wooden halt, Bentley Crossing, built by the West Riding and Grimsby Railway, had previously existed at the same location but was long disused. A common complaint is the lack of a footbridge between the two platforms. Passengers have to cross through the road barrier to get from one side to the other; therefore they may have to wait until trains have passed, and could miss their trains. The Wakefield line is busy with intercity East Coast services and freight services as well as the northern rail operations. Bentley is a popular commuting station for Leeds and Wakefield. It has a large car park for the size of the station and as such is a good station for Park and Ride to Doncaster. However possibly due to the footbridge issue, Adwick station is the dedicated park and ride station for Doncaster.
