Godley railway station serves the Godley area of Hyde, Tameside, Greater Manchester, England. It is 8½ miles (14 km) east of Manchester Piccadilly on the Manchester-Glossop Line.

Sign at Godley

It was built to replace the original Godley Junction station. It is placed above a bridge, hence the narrow platforms. Unlike most stations built on the line (with the exception of Flowery Field), it is built on wooden stilts, unlike the stone platforms built for the Woodhead Line.

Services[edit]

There is a half-hourly daily service from Godley to Manchester Piccadilly and Glossop/Hadfield,[1] with an hourly service on evenings and Sundays.[2] The station is unstaffed and does not have customer help points[3]
