Cornholme railway station served the village of Cornholme in West Yorkshire, England on the Copy Pit line. The station was opened by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in 1878 (nearly thirty years after the line itself) and closed by the LMS on 26 September 1938. The line remains in use for passenger trains between York/Leeds and Blackpool, which run non-stop between Hebden Bridge and Burnley.
