Gatley railway station is on the Styal Line between Slade Lane Junction in Longsight, Manchester and Wilmslow, Cheshire. Opened by the London & North Western Railway in 1909, it was known as Gatley for Cheadle before being renamed Gatley on 6 May 1974.[1] It serves Gatley, a commuter suburb in Stockport, Greater Manchester. The station is operated by Northern with services from Manchester Piccadilly to Manchester Airport and Crewe via Wilmslow stopping here.[2] Some peak TransPennine Express services to and from Manchester Airport also stop at Gatley.

The station is on the A560 Gatley Road and has a car park. The ticket office and waiting room, on the Manchester-bound platform, are only open in the morning.

The station re-opened on 28 January 2007 after reconstruction of the platforms and work to replace the ramp access to them. 2010 saw the installation of electronic train service information screens on each platform.
