History[edit]

Bolton-upon-Dearne railway station was opened by the Swinton and Knottingley Railway on 1 July 1879, and was originally named Hickleton. The station was renamed as Bolton-on-Dearne on 1 November 1879. The name was altered again on 15 January 1924 to become 'Bolton-on-Dearne For Goldthorpe', before reverting to 'Bolton-on-Dearne' on 12 June 1961. It was renamed Bolton-upon-Dearne on 3 April 2008.[1]

The station was reported[where?] as being in the worst condition of any in South Yorkshire[citation needed] and the Passenger Transport Executive earmarked improvements to bring it up to a decent standard. Work to renew platforms (increase height, resurface), provide new waiting shelters and lighting was completed in November 2007.[2] A new footbridge was opened in April 2010.[3]

Service[edit]

Monday to Saturday there is an hourly service to Sheffield southbound and to Leeds northbound. Sundays there is a two-hourly service in each direction.[4]
