Gisburn railway station served the small village of Gisburn, which is now in Lancashire, England, but was in the West Riding of Yorkshire at the time. It was opened by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in 1879. The station closed to passengers in September 1962, shortly before the Beeching Report was published.
