Honley railway station serves the village of Honley in the Holme Valley of West Yorkshire, England. Honley station lies approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) from Huddersfield on the Penistone Line operated by Northern Rail.

The station was opened by the Huddersfield & Sheffield Junction Railway (a constituent company of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway) in 1850.
The railway line through Honley has been single since 1989, with only one platform (the former northbound one) in use for both directions (the derelict southbound one is however still visible, as can be seen in the accompanying photograph).

In August 2013, plans were released to install electronic customer real-time information screens (CIS) at the station. It was later revealed by Metro that they will be installed in May/June 2014. [2]

Services[edit]

There is an hourly service in operation Monday to Saturday from Honley to Huddersfield and Sheffield, with a two-hourly service in each direction on Sundays.
