Godley railway station serves the Godley area of Hyde, Tameside, Greater Manchester, England. It is 8½ miles (14 km) east of Manchester Piccadilly on the Manchester-Glossop Line.

Sign at Godley

It was built to replace the original Godley Junction station. It is placed above a bridge, hence the narrow platforms. Unlike most stations built on the line (with the exception of Flowery Field), it is built on wooden stilts, unlike the stone platforms built for the Woodhead Line.

Services[edit]

There is a half-hourly daily service (including Sundays) to Manchester Piccadilly and Hadfield,[1] with an hourly service in the evenings and extra trains during the weekday business peaks.

Additionally the 17:26 service from Hadfield to Piccadilly is the only service not to call at Godley, which only calls at Dinting, Broadbottom, Hattersley, Newton for Hyde, Flowery Field, Guide Bridge, Ashburys and Piccadilly.[2]

Facilities[edit]

The station is unstaffed, has no ticket provision (so tickets must be bought on the train or prior to travel) and does not have customer help points. Waiting shelters are located on each side, with train running information provided by timetable posters and by telephone. No step-free access is available to the platforms.[3]
