Flowery Field railway station serves the Flowery Field area of Hyde, Greater Manchester, England. It is 7 miles (11 km) east of Manchester Piccadilly on the Manchester-Glossop Line. The station is managed by Northern Rail.
The station was opened in 1985 and is mainly a wooden structure.
As part of the failed Manchester TIF bid, the station would have been refurbished with CCTV, real-time passenger information and additional seating and shelters. The bid failed because the residents of Greater Manchester voted against the congestion charge.
There is a half-hourly daily service to Manchester Piccadilly and to Hadfield/Glossop. Trains operate hourly during evenings and Sundays.
