Berry Brow railway station serves the Huddersfield suburban villages of Berry Brow, Taylor Hill, Armitage Bridge and Newsome in the metropolitan borough of Kirklees in West Yorkshire.

The present single-platform station was opened by British Rail in 1989. It lies some 2.25 miles (3.6 km) south of Huddersfield railway station on the Penistone Line between Huddersfield and Sheffield and is managed by Northern.

The original Berry Brow station was 330 yards (300 m) from the present location, in the direction of Huddersfield. It opened on 1 July 1850 and closed on 2 July 1966.[1]

Facilities[edit]

The station is unstaffed and has a basic shelter on its single platform; all tickets must be bought on the train or in advance, as there is no ticket machine. Timetable posters and a digital display screen provide train running information. Step-free access is via a steep ramp from the main road above.[2]

Services[edit]

All services to the station are operated by Northern. There is an hourly service in both directions on Monday to Saturdays, and a two-hourly service on Sundays.[3]
