Heald Green railway station serves the suburb of Heald Green in Stockport, England.

The station is on the Styal Line, opened in 1909 by the London & North Western Railway, between Gatley and Wilmslow. To the south of the station is Heald Green Junction, a triangular junction for the branch to Manchester Airport.[1]

This two-platform station is used by Northern Rail and First TransPennine Express for regular services to Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Airport with some services continuing to Wilmslow and Crewe.

Services[edit]

There are three services each hour on the core route between Piccadilly and Manchester Airport each weekday (plus a few peak extras)[2] - northbound there are two serving all stations (run by Northern) and one TPE through service to Blackpool North via Preston, whilst southbound two terminate at the Airport and the other continues through to Crewe via Wilmslow and Sandbach.

On Sundays, there is an hourly service each way, with two-hourly extensions southbound to Alderley Edge.
