Cooper Bridge was a railway station built by the Manchester and Leeds Railway to serve the town of Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, England.[1]

History[edit]

Opened by the Manchester and Leeds Railway in 1840 to serve Huddersfield, 4 miles (6.4 km) away, which at that time did not have a station of its own.[2] The station was said to have been built for and by, the owner of Kirklees Hall the Armytage family.[3][4]
