Clayton West railway station is a station that was previously on the national rail network (until 1983) and now forms the eastern terminus of the Kirklees Light Railway. It is situated in Clayton West, West Yorkshire, England.
The 3.5-mile (5.6 km) line to Clayton West from Shepley Junction was authorised by an act of Parliament on 11 June 1866. It was opened on 1 September 1879 and was built to double line standards, as so many of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway branch lines in this area were.
It was closed on 24 January 1983.
