Deighton railway station serves the Deighton area of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England.

Deighton station is the first station 2 miles (3.2 km) northeast of Huddersfield railway station on the Huddersfield Line towards Leeds.


There have been two stations at Deighton, on different routes.

The first station, on the branch line to Kirkburton, opened on 30 August 1871,[1] the branch having opened in 1867.[2] This station was situated on the north-east side of Whitacre Street.[2] It closed on 28 July 1930.[1]

The present station was opened on 26 April 1982[1] by Metro (the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive). It is to the south-west of Whitacre Street and close to the site of the former Kirkburton branch junction.[2]


The station is unstaffed but has ticket machines, Tickets must be purchased before boarding the train to benefit from any fare discounts. There are waiting shelters on both platforms, but no other permanent buildings. Train running information is offered via automated announcements, digital information screens and timetable posters. Both platforms have step-free access via ramps from the nearby road.[3] Both platforms will be extended by Network Rail by December 2018 to accommodate longer trains in the future, as part of the Great North Rail Project (along with a number of others in the area).[4]


Local trains on the Huddersfield Line operated by Northern from Huddersfield going towards Wakefield Kirkgate stop at Deighton. There is also an hourly TransPennine Express stopping service between Leeds and Huddersfield (connections are available there for stations further west). All other TransPennine and Northern services go through the station at high speed.[5]

The hourly TransPennine Express service also runs on Sunday, though the Northern trains between Huddersfield and Wakefield do not.
