Passenger statistics from the Office of Rail and Road

Denby Dale railway station serves the village of Denby Dale, in West Yorkshire, England and the surrounding area. It lies on the Penistone Line 9.5 miles (15 km) south east of Huddersfield and is operated by Northern. Opened by the Huddersfield & Sheffield Junction Railway in 1850 (which subsequently became part of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway), it originally had two platforms but lost the northbound one when the Clayton West Junction to Penistone section was singled in 1969. The line from the south is carried above the village on an impressive 21-arch stone viaduct which is over 100 feet (30 m) high (one of several such structures on the route).

In August 2013, plans were released to install electronic real-time customer information screens (CIS) at the station. They were installed in the autumn of 2014.[2]

Facilities and ticketing

Denby Dale is a boundary station for both West Yorkshire PTE and South Yorkshire PTE. Therefore, tickets for both PTE's are valid to and from this station. It is unstaffed and passengers must buy their tickets prior to travel or from the conductor on the train. Train running information is provided by timetable posters and the aforementioned CIS displays. The only remaining station buildings here are in private industrial use (as part of a builders yard) - a standard waiting shelter is provided for passengers. No step-free access is available to the platform - the main entrance via the car park has a high kerb that can cause difficulties for wheelchair users, whilst the pedestrian subway at the south end has steps.[3]


On Monday to Saturday, trains operate hourly towards Huddersfield northbound and Sheffield via Barnsley southbound; this also runs hourly in each direction on Sundays.[4]
