Hyde Central railway station is the main station serving Hyde, Greater Manchester, England.
Hyde, it was built by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, opening in 1858 as a branch from its main line through Penistone to Sheffield. From 1862 the branch was extended to New Mills to meet the Midland Railway's extension of its line from Millers Dale. For a while it saw Midlands expresses from London. In 1875, however, a new more direct route was built through Bredbury.
The substantial station buildings were demolished in 1980 with a new booking office at street level commissioned in their place.
Hyde is also served by
Hyde North (on the same line as Hyde Central) and by Flowery Field, Newton for Hyde and Godley on the electrified Manchester to Glossop/ Hadfield line. [1 ]
Service [ edit ]
Hyde Central is served by a twice-hourly weekday & Saturday (until 19.00) service either way between
Manchester Piccadilly and Rose Hill Marple. On Saturdays, some services run to Marple rather than Rose Hill. [2 ]
