Bingley Station in 1961

Bingley railway station serves the town of Bingley in West Yorkshire, England, and is 13.5 miles (21.7 km) away from Leeds and 5.5 miles (8.9 km) away from Bradford Forster Square on the Airedale Line operated by Northern Rail.

History[edit]

The Leeds and Bradford Railway opened the Leeds and Bradford Extension Railway from Shipley to Keighley on 16 March 1847. Bingley station opened on the first day, and remained the only intermediate station until Saltaire was built in 1856.

The original station, near the Three Rise Lock, was of wood, but the Midland Railway (who had absorbed the L&BR in 1851) opened the current station on 24 July 1892.
