Haworth railway station serves the village of Haworth in West Yorkshire, England. It was opened in 1867 along with the rest of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway,[1] and closed in 1962.[2] Preservation led to the line being reopened in June 1968[3] and now serves as the headquarters of the railway.[4] The former goods shed in the railway yard has been expanded into the locomotive shed for the railway providing facilities for the storage, maintenance and overhaul of the locomotives on the line.[5]

The station, its immediate environs and the railway workshops are all designated as part of the Haworth Conservation Area by Bradford Council.[6]
