The line between Leeds and Ravensthorpe was built by the Leeds, Dewsbury and Manchester Railway, which was absorbed by the London and North Western Railway prior to opening.[1] Dewsbury railway station was opened on 18 September 1848 and was subsequently named Dewsbury Wellington Road from 2 June 1924 until 20 February 1969, when it reverted to the original name.[2]

Dewsbury was also served by three other stations which have since closed:

No trace of Market Place station remains, but the façade of Dewsbury Central was incorporated into a bridge supporting the Dewsbury Ring Road in 1985.

Facilities

The station is staffed through the day, with the ticket office on Platform 1 open from 06:15 until 19:30 each day (except Sunday, when it opens at 07:30). Self-service ticket machines are also provided in the booking hall.

There are waiting rooms on each platform, along with digital display screens, customer help points, timetable poster boards and automated announcements to offer train running information. A public house and a shop offer refreshment facilities. Lifts integrated into the footbridge provide step-free access to both platforms.

Ticket barriers were installed in 2018.[3]

Services

As of May 2018, Dewsbury is served by four trains per hour to Leeds and four trains per hour to Manchester. The regular service pattern is as follows:

  1. A TransPennine Express service to Middlesbrough calling at Leeds, York, Thirsk, Northallerton, Yarm and Thornaby.
  2. A TransPennine Express service to Hull calling at Batley, Leeds, Garforth, Selby and Brough.
  3. A TransPennine Express service to Leeds calling at Batley and Morley.
  4. A Northern service to Leeds calling at Morley and Cottingley.
  5. A TransPennine Express service to Manchester Airport calling at Huddersfield, Manchester Victoria, Manchester Oxford Road and Manchester Piccadilly.
  6. A TransPennine Express service to Manchester Piccadilly calling at Huddersfield, Slaithwaite, Mossley and Stalybridge.
  7. A TransPennine Express service to Manchester Piccadilly calling at Ravensthorpe, Mirfield, Deighton, Huddersfield, Marsden, Greenfield and Stalybridge.
  8. A Northern service to Southport calling at Mirfield, Brighouse, Sowerby Bridge, Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge, Todmorden, Walsden, Smithy Bridge, Rochdale, Manchester Victoria, Salford Central, Salford Crescent, Swinton, Walkden, Atherton, Daisy Hill, Wigan Wallgate, Gathurst, Appley Bridge, Parbold, Burscough Bridge and Meols Cop.[4]

On Sundays the Northern services do not run, so the TransPennine Express service terminating at Leeds also calls at Cottingley.
