Bailiff Bridge railway station was built by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway to serve the village of Bailiff Bridge north of Brighouse in West Yorkshire, England.

History[edit]

Opened by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway, the station was then closed during the First World War as an economy measure. The route continued in use until mining subsidence caused the closure of the line in 1952.[1][2]
