The branch line to Holmfirth was built at the same time as the Huddersfield and Sheffield Junction Railway line from Huddersfield to Penistone, incorporated by act of Parliament in 1845. The engineering works were to the same double line standard as the main line, in anticipation of a widespread industrialisation that never materialised.
The Holmfirth Branch Line ran for 1.75 miles, leaving the main line south of Brockholes. It curved south through Thongsbridge before ending in a single platform terminus (with a turntable) at Holmfirth.
