Frizinghall railway station is situated in the Frizinghall district of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. The station, an unstaffed halt 2 miles (3 km) north of Bradford Forster Square is on the Airedale Line, and all trains serving it are operated by Northern Trains.


Frizinghall station was opened by the Midland Railway on 1 February 1875.[1] It remained in operation until it was closed on 20 March 1965, a casualty of the Beeching Axe. However, the line on which it stood remained open, and 22 years later, the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive and British Rail reopened the station.

The original station had two platforms opposite each other on the north side of Frizinghall Road, but the current station, opened on 7 September 1987, has its two platforms separated: the northbound platform is approximately where it was before, and the southbound is to the south of Frizinghall Road.

Bradford Grammar School was relocated to Frizinghall in the late 1940s. From then until closure, and again after reopening, pupils have constituted one of the main sources of traffic at the station. Indeed, it was an English teacher at Bradford Grammar School, Dr Robin Sisson, who actively fought for the Frizinghall station to reopen. Sisson was killed in a car accident in Sheffield on 24 June 2008.[2]

Frizinghall signal box, which was removed in 1971, is preserved in working order at Damems Junction, on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.[3]


The station is not staffed, but ticket machines are provided. There are shelters on both platforms, along with digital information screens; a long-line P.A system also provides train running information. Step-free access to each platform is via ramps from the road bridge.[4]


Frizinghall is served by trains from Bradford Forster Square towards Leeds (on the Leeds-Bradford Line), Skipton (on the Airedale Line) and Ilkley (on the Wharfedale Line). Monday to Saturday daytimes, trains operate every 30 minutes each way on each route. During the evenings, there are trains every hour to/from each of Skipton and Ilkley plus an hourly service between Forster Square and Shipley. At these times there are no trains to Leeds, though connections are available at Shipley into/out of the Skipton - Leeds service.[5]

On Sundays, trains run twice each hour to Bradford, every hour to Leeds (until end of service) and hourly to each of Ilkley and Skipton.
