Hooley Hill Railway Station served the Hooley Hill area of Audenshaw and was located on the Denton to Stalybridge Stalybridge Junction Railway. This was built & opened by the London and North Western Railway in 1893 to avoid the busy junctions at Guide Bridge and provide the company with its own route between Stalybridge & Stockport. The Bradshaws timetable for 1922 listed 11 southbound & 12 northbound trains calling on Mondays to Saturdays, but none on Sundays.

The station was closed to passenger traffic by British Railways on 25 September 1950, shortly after nationalisation.
