Originally simply Hyde, it was built by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, opening in 1858 as a branch from its main line through Penistone to Sheffield. From 1862 the branch was extended to New Mills to meet the Midland Railway's extension of its line from Millers Dale. For a while it saw Midlands expresses from London. In 1875, however, a new more direct route was built through Bredbury.
The substantial station buildings were demolished in 1980 with a new booking office at street level commissioned in their place.
Hyde Central is served by a half-hourly weekday & Saturday (until 19.00) DMU service either way between Manchester Piccadilly and Rose Hill Marple. On Saturdays only, one train per hour runs to Marple rather than Rose Hill.
There is no Sunday service.
